The reason we had the opportunity to buy our new girl is that her owners wanted to cruise Europe but were not prepared to risk the Red Sea and unhappy about the prospect of Cape Good Hope.

Instead they sold her, flew to Europe and have bought another boat over there in which they intend to cruise Eruope and the Med then cross the Atlantic, through Panama and Pacific back to Oz.
