Aboard Sengo – April 2018

Impending storm at sunset. Davenport Creek


April was an educational month. We learnt a lot. We learnt how to turn a white boat into a red one. We learnt how to raise and lower an anchor by hand. We learnt that official tide tables from one source do not necessarily match the official tide station data from another source. We learnt that mosquitoes seemed to amass in greater numbers when it is due to rain, and we learnt that, depending on where you are, the Australian Government’s weather service (bom.gov.au) can’t always be relied on for accurate wind predictions.

    • Hi Justin, The deprivation wasnt by design, and as it turned out he has his hands occupied with the wheel! Next time I will organise the coffee before we set the sails! 🙂

  2. I hope your May has less education and more fun, but in spite of your challenges, your April was magnificent. How I wish we’d sailed Australia longer and wider. Wonderful to explore it further here with you virtually.

    • Hi Lisa, How lovely of you to say so. Of course, that just means, once you do the BIG lap, you will have to come back and do a slightly smaller one of Aus. xx
