Greetings Everyone,

Instead of enjoying some peace and quiet and the beauty of Bundaberg we have been HECTICLY packing! We’ve managed to stow 47 cartons, numerous loose articles, a ute load of sails and ropes and the hard dinghy on an already full boat. We are into the sales and have sold an outboard motor, an MPS sail, 40 metres of rope and a number of jerry cans to another yachtie at the marina and quite surprisingly a number of nautical odds and ends at the local Tender Centre. More will go on e-bay and the overflow will be stored for eternity (do I hear some sarcasm, Phil) in the shed at Iluka.

Meanwhile, I have a brand new built in fridge that goes.

Phil’s eye seems to be going well. He has multi-focal glasses and is trying to adjust to them. He has to go back to the Eye Hospital in Sydney at the end of November for a check-up. I’m catching a lift down to the Central Coast for my 50 year school reunion on the 14th November so Max Gardiner, a keen-to-sail Gideon friend is sailing with Phil to Iluka.

The yacht is already full of gear to take to the Louisiades next year.

God bless,

Pam and Phil

From the Administrator – sorry for the delay, just got back from Fiji (second honeymoon and retirment celebration).
