G'day John and Wotname.
Yep...Us Aussies just keep on popping up.
Wotname, The North Point I mentioned is a slip up..
(Another Senior Moment????)
North Point is the current
name of my yacht. A Compass
I really mean't North Reef.
It is the reef that is out from Scarborough.
Serge Testa ran aground there as he left Australia
for his record
breaking trip around the world in the 80's.
I also did it.
In fact if any local who sails
seriously denies that he has not done it, we call him a 'fibber'.
The sandbanks have moved a little.
Generally right after you cross safely they move so they get you on the return journey. I have had many a coffee while waiting for the tide to rise a little so I can get off.
I will have a read of your blog John.
Just out of curiosity, are there any members who sail in this area of mine? (Moreton Bay).
