the vessel is in Cairns.
Could leave her with trusted Family
have the months available to go west_about (via Perth).
No time either to await that (Possible) Xmas Northerly.
The prospect of sailing Coast-wise south is daunting... getting up every day to bash south into the face of the SE Trades.
? Q1. Does it make any more sense to head
out into the Coral sea
, turning the trip from a long series of day trips into an Ocean passage
?? = doing a big "Zig" before a "Zag" back to the Coast around Moreton Bay?
? Q2. Or, if I going to go to so much bother, why not simply bite the bullet and head
home ... across the Coral Sea
, on into the Tasman - aiming for landfall in Auckland
/ NZ ?
