Joy Smith and Jeannine Talley had set sail from Australia headed for Fiji. About 400 miles out they were caught in a severe storm of hurricane strength and their yacht "BANSHEE" was rolled over and dismasted. We received a call from Joan Anderson in Australia informing us that a distress signal had been heard from "BANSHEE" and would we pray for their rescue. We joined our prayers with many others and they were shortly spotted and rescued. While in Mooloolaba we were able to renew our friendship with Joy and Jeannine and had the pleasure of assisting them with the installation of the new mast for "BANSHEE'. A fisherman friend of theirs had gone out and located their boat and towed it back to port and presented it to them free of any charge! They have been rebuilding and are preparing to sail to Guam yet this year where they hope to find teaching jobs to add to their cruising purse.
Joy smith wrote a book too Escape from hermit Island
two experienced Pacific voyagers, Joy Smith, a former USPS member, and Leslie Brown, hit a reef in remote Hermit Island, Papua New Guinea, sinking their Bristol 34 sloop, Banshee. To make matters worse, Joy injures her finger and they have no suitable medication on board. They find themselves at the mercy of the local population but have a strong friend in Paul, one of the native chiefs. Joy has to seek medical attention 130 miles away, while Leslie, an expert diver, attempts to repair the damaged hull underwater.

i am a bit confused
"Yet this year" does this mean that they are still in Australia trying to fix their boat?

Ohh boy I pasted this early this morning moments after I walked out the door onto sheet ice and did a hail mary down the concrete steps. Spilled my coffee and banged up my arm etc pretty bad.
Any way This year was 1990 from what I clipped I think although not sure that there was a change in crew and the trip began again in 96 I am guessing looked like an interesting story. I should have said I clipped these. sorry for the muttled confusion
