Well I just went all the way around Peel Is.. Took my father in law out for a sail. He started off in sail, then went to steam , then ww2 turned up. He still can hold a course very well. He enjoyed getting out on the water again, even if it was only for a day.

Re: Far North QLD Australia

Nice sail from Whitsundays to Cairns, we sailed it a year ago, this year we are going up to Lizard Island from Cairns. There's plenty of good sheltered anchorages on your way up, have a great trip
PS nice looking boat too
