Thx Stuart, that's most helpful. We have explored nearly all the atolls like this off the east coast
, so I am now confident we could handle this ok. There is usually a sandy area that is reasonably comfortable just inside the southern and eastern rims and these atolls and the fisherman's description sought of points that way. We tend to mess around this type of places for 1-3 weeks depending on the weather
. We like diving, snorkelling, a little fishing, and doing nothing.
I also always wanted to go to Moore reef near Nth Willis. If you were interested in coming with us to Eastern Fields-- then it might be an excellent spring cruise
for us to go to Moore Reef first then head
to Port Moresby with the wind
on our hind quarter. We could meet up and go to Eastern fields together in November. If time permits after Eastern Fields we would return to Australia
via Ashmore Reef (excellent anchorage) then back inside the GBR at Molter Cay and Great Detached reefs
where we have been several times before.
Anyhow, that's me just thinking of the top of my head
. Thx again for the info and let me know if you would like to explore the prospect of a joint cruise to one of your bucket list hot spots
