    This is the sort of good info I need. I have a lot to learn about getting the international paperwork in order. I've heard it can be a bit hard to get visas for yachts into indo. I've travelled lots of the outer islands of info but only flying in or ferries. Raja Ampat is amazing and only about 1500 nml from here.
    I've been out to the wessels in power boats a few times. The oceans are beautiful but the islands themselves are bare rocks. I didn't take my spray out there because at 3kn it was just too slow and painfull. I'm hopping to head out this afternoon to have a better look at the tri

    I started sailing when I was 10 years old when my father borrowed a 12’ sailing boat made of polystyrene (the only one I have ever seen). I became addicted and sailed it almost everyday over the summer break. I begged my father to get me a boat. Enter the Mirror dinghy and began to race at the local club (I was crap but it was fun). Then progressed to a VJ which I spent more time in the water then moving....wish I still had that boat, it was fun.
    Raced on many different small keel boats in mixed fleets both inshore and short offshore. Saved my money and built a 25’ boat for racing in the JOG fleets (we did ok). Kept that boat for many years and once it was no longer competitive (rating rule changes) I set it up for weekend aways. Soon realized I wanted a more comfortable vessel and built a 40’ cruising boat. Family situation changed and sold the cruiser and moved back to racing this time in a 42’ ex Admirals Cup boat. This included short and long offshore races including many Cat 1 & 2 races (Sydney-Hobart, Gosford-Lord Howe, Pittwater-Coffs Harbour). Getting older and desiring comfort I then moved to a smaller 31’ centre cockpit, but it was just to cramped. Then I decided to move to the “dark side” and changed to a catamaran (so much space and the beer can is where you left it after the tack).
