Right. Then you may get clocked by a cyclone or a typhoon, but *never* by a hurricane.
Tsunami anyone?
Yep! All kinds of stuff happening in the Pacific as well. We sailed down to New Zealand in 01 to get out of the "cyclone, Typhoon" season. dodged an early Season Cyclone " in Vanuatu" in 06. Weathered another close one in Townsville, QLD, Australia in 08 and another really close call in Palawan, Phillipines in 2010.. so yeah tell me how much safer the Pacific is....We aborted out trip to Japan after the Tsunami, tidal wave and Nuclear disaster in Japan.... Best you wannabees stay home with your apps......Oh yeah, we will suffer with Thai curry, prawns on the BBQ, bar girls and the other delights of a Hurricane, typhoon free Asai, Yes we will be getting out of dodge on the tsunami warnings from the earthquakes in Sumatra...Geez, and all the things I've got worry about...
