Long Time No Sea

It's been a while since I've checked in to the forum, which is a bit sad given the huge amount of info and help we got while getting Wind Wanderer set up for cruising in 2012/2013. I guess we went from dreaming about it to doing it.
Briefly, we completed a 3 year circum last year and sailed in to Trinidad before the hurricane season.
We had to fly back to Australia, combination of stuff to do here and family events, weddings, grandkids, new grandkids... usual stuff, including starting work on an off grid cabin to be our home base when not sailing. Before we knew it another year had slipped by.
C'est la vie...
Vic

G'Day Vic, and welcome back to CF. Well done on the RTW, too! Ann and I are still potzing around the east coast, Tassie and New Cal. Just came through Newcastle heading north... would be good to catch up some time.

Thanks Jim,
You and Ann have always been a great inspiration to us, and I'm sure many others.
It would be great to catch up again, maybe on your way back down.
We're freezing our butts up on top of the Great Dividing Range at Hanging Rock, about an hour from Tamworth.
Fair winds...
Vic and Sandy

Thanks Don,
I'd hardly know where to start.
We used to have a section at the bottom of our posts and I had the link to our website/blog there,
But I don't see it now.
Try this www.windwanderer.weebly.com
