Re: Sailing advice...Australia to Asia then East

Hi Mocking, the main island of PNG is not very friendly. But there is no need to go there.
Stay well off on the outer islands, the people are friendly, and you won't have any problems.

Re: Sailing advice...Australia to Asia then East

Hi Mocking
I think there are two weather windows to cross the line in this end of the Pacific. One is to leave Cairns before the end of Nov. See http://blog.mailasail.com/sylph for Bobs voyage direct to Japan from Cairns. The other window is in April. The Melbourne to Osaka race starts in March but has had a few dramas in the past clearing Aus.
This year looks to be an El Nino year so research the start of past cyclone seasons in El Nino years for a heads up on when to set out before the Wet srason sets in in Aus.
