Thanks chaps, a bit more of a fill in my wife and I ran away from Tassie in 2004 and travel around in Aus in a 4x4 and trailer. Seen a fair bit by road in 3 years, settled in Kalgoorlie for 3 years.
We sailed in Tassie and the lust for the sea came when we were kayaking in the Whitsundays last August. Next thing you know the house is on the market the caravan and motor bikes are sold and we are looking for a yacht.
This we throught would have to wait till the east coast but a Hitech Farr36 came on to the market in December.
We got hold Gallivant for a good price and have been refitting in Mandurah for the last five months.
Shark Bay is very open and a lot of shoals so will make for some interesting sailing as we draw nearly 2m fully loaded. Will post when we get up there presently getting used to being on the yacht full time not tied to a marina.
The Bight will be fun
the hope is that we can get a on the back of low pressure in October and make Port Lincoln in 5 to 7 days or 10 days with some good weather to start with
