We may well cross paths along the way, but we've found sailing together is difficult with vastly different boats.
When we left Panama we left with 3 other boats and we all thought it would be good to keep loosely in a group. Within 24 hours we'd all lost sight of each other, although we did keep in radio contact some of the time.

We're probably not going all the way to Darwin, but we are thinking about going up to cape York. Maybe our paths will cross.

Re: Anyone sailing from the East Coast of Australia to Darwin this Year?

Sorry to be way off topic , however I may be looking for a private mooring / pontoon in Mooloolaba soon, maybe for a few months at least. Parents live very close , and looks nice to anchor , but hear live aboards are not really accepted.
Can help with maintenance , yard work , security etc. Love to hear from any possibilities.
