Greetings Everyone,
We’re back in Oz after possibly the roughest trip of our sixteen crossings.  The winds and seas were much rougher than predicted.  Another yacht travelling with us had their sails shredded and limped along under motor to Willis Island to do repairs and to cadge some more fuel.

We’ve had a couple of days in the marina and a trip to Sizzlers thanks to a good friend in Townsville and are now sitting in the duck pond outside the marina (St Vinny’s marina) waiting for the wind to go north so we can go south.  My Mum has rallied somewhat and is going into St Vincents Hospital in Lismore for physio to try and regain mobility to stay at home.  Dad is looking forward to me being there to take the load off his shoulders.

Please pray for the north-easterlies to kick in so we can head off.  Looking forward to catching up with as many of you as possible when we get mobile in the van again.

God bless,

Pam and Phil
