Re: Norfolk island

I spent many years flying aircraft to Norfolk Island and can vouch for the beauty of the place.
But I would not want to sail there! The weather is capricious and there are no proper harbours. Even on a good day, you would not want to leave your boat- even if you could get safely ashore. Yachts do occasionally call there, but they never looked to me as if they were very secure.
