So I’ve realised that this blog will ultimately be about a sailing adventure, but it doesn’t look like we sail at all!
Well here is some proof… From last year.
In November 2011 we participated in a sailing regatta called the Bribie Cup, crewing on a beautiful old classic boat called Tahara. The race starts North of the Brisbane River and heads North towards Bribie Island, through Deception Bay. It’s hard to explain, so here is a map of the course (note that this is the Northern end of Moreton Bay near Brisbane):
Ours was the short course.
It was a beautiful day out sailing, and probably only the second time Ryan and I had been sailing together. This was before we decided that we would be going on the ultimate sailing adventure.
Oh, and we won! Of course. (Well… our division).
Here is the proof we actually sail:
Here is what Tahara looks like:
