I don't want to monopolize the thread but I have found out some photos from the 80's that I want to share with you all. Those are from Portugal, I had a traditional wooden boat at that time and sailed only here.

This is another repost from a few years back.. but this is a kinda neat way to remember trips or events... With all the photo handling software available these days it's easy to do.

We occasionally make collages of highlights and send them to our guests afterwards.. they come out like so:

America's Cup penultimate edition, a great one. I hope you guys can make a big party of this year's edition because the last one sucked, I don't mean in what regards sports but in what regards a public event.

If I ever get off my fat lazy backside and get the report written these should all reappear in the Womboat's Cruise to the Broughton Islands but until then, a sample. (Broughton Islands ... approx 10nms ne of Port Stephens NSW)

On the way ... Morning in Smiths Creek, Broken Bay.



Sunset, America Bay, Broken Bay.



Coal Shaft Bay, Broughton Island



Busy place ... we had to share the anchorage with two other boats.



(at least they were classics .... both timber (Huon Pine) beauties)

On the way home .... one perfect sail ....
