For cruisers of both the permanent and seasonal kind, October is the month that the question arises – ‘where do we want to be for the cyclone season?’ For some of us at least, the answer is reliant on our insurance restrictions. For others, plans are already in place to be well-south of tropical latitudes. Sengo and her crew did manage to get a bit further north and touch the Great Barrier Reef in October, but by the end of the month we had turned around and were well below our insurance line. We were however, still in Queensland, finishing the month anchored off South Stradbroke Island opposite Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast. The plan is still to be in Victoria for the Festive Season but we will have to wait until after scheduled annual maintenance and hope for good weather before we head further south.
