I’ve got some good news and some very bad news. I’ll start with the good news. We’ve got a new crew member who’s name is Rod. Here are some fun facts about him.
favourite ice-cream flavours are: Vanilla and Hazelnut chocolate.
Interests: Bike riding; running, camping and ice-cream.
Most satisfying moment: While volunteering for the SES finding two guys who had been lost in the bush for three days.
Biggest adventure: Riding his push-bike along the Gibb River Road in the Kimberley.
Do you get sea sick?: YES!!!
We saw some huge jellyfish in the Yamba marina and bought so much chocolate we needed a 30cm by 20cm by 15cm container to hold it all! We need the chocolate for our over night sails.
And now for the bad news! We hit something in the water at night so now there’s a crack in the steering block and our AUTOPILOT snapped so we had to come back to Coffs Harbour to get it looked at. We don’t know if we will be able to sail anymore unless we can get the steering fixed fast! It’s a DISASTER!!!
I’ll keep you posted as soon as I know more.
We are catching a plane to Lord Howe Island!!! We’re going because the boat is out of order for a week. Not quite the same but still…………….
Next update at Lord Howe Island.
