It has been such a tragic Easter for the Aussie boating
community with wild weather
all over the country. We send our sincere condolances to the families that must be going through hell right now.
As well as the tragic loss of life, boats in the Tasmania Three Peaks Race
ran aground, six men
were rescued in Bass Straight after their yacht started taking on water
, and now we hear an empty liferaft
has washed up in NSW with evidence that it had been recently inhabited
We are worried about fellow CF members Banyandah who headed to Port Davey on the Tassie South Coast in March. Communications
down there are pretty much limited to HF but if anyone has heard from them, please let us know.
All this has really brought home just how dangerous the life we have chosen can be sometimes.
Stay safe everyone.
