Monday the 15th of November.

Heard the Captain this morning on Sheila Net. His position shows him North of Broome. Going must be slow as the winds are coming from where he wants to go.

Progress on the BIG Passage!

Heard the Captain on Sheila Net this morning (Thursday). Couldn’t get his position due to the poor HF propagation (Too noisy), but he sounded fine. Hope to get a position tomorrow morning.

Signed, “Quinco”

Update 7-11-2010
Will be leaving Darwin onMonday 8thof Nov, heading for Bunbury WA. Have had a good journey so far, went straight through from Townsville up to Cape York, then over to Horn Island. Checked ou Thursday Island, ended up buying a digeridoo from the locals. Left Horn and headed for Gove, stayed a few days and then sailed to Wigram Island, had a good nights sleep and first thing next morning headad  for the "Hole in the wall " in the Wessell Islands. Thought my life was about to end ,very wild waters and not much room but the captain fought his way through and arrived safely in Darwin.


The captain reached Cape York and stayed overnight, then onto Horn Island where he anchored and then went across to Thursday Island on the ferry to check the place out
