Hey Geoff ... no detour. Standard route is pretty much into TI , hang there till conditions are suitable then slip on out for Gove. Get it right and it is sensational sailing. From TI to Gove I have rarely enjoyed myself more.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

My most humble apologies.

So I am looking at the map I see Ti Island off the tip of New Caledonia. From Cairns you would need to head ESE to get to Ti and then turn around and head NW to pass through the straight between Australia and Papua New Guinea. Doesn’t seem right. Am I looking and the right Ti? Am I missing something (other than brain cells)?

When I looked at the satellite for Thursday Island, I thought fallard had got it.

Yep ... in Oz it is only ever referred to as TI so StAnna gets the glory. Fallard of course was correct but after StAnna had already scored.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I hope St. Anna comes back soon and posts a picture so that this thread doesn't fade away quite yet...

Not to worry, I'm sure he will but ..... I'm thinking that if winner does not re-appear within 24 hours we pass the baton to someone else.

You (as OP), are you happy with that ?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

tdw - I agree that if the winner doesn't collect their prize by posting within 24 hours of getting the right answer they unfortunately should forfeit the prize. I'll post an easy picture now to get the thread rolling again:



p.s. Easy for those who have been there before, that is. This is a real office where cruisers clear into this country.
