“Johanna II” Hanse 355 Melb to Auckland Oct 2019

Delivering a yacht across the Tasman always has some days when the weather is somewhat interesting. Not to disappoint, days 5-7 were 35-50kts with seas reaching 5 mtrs but Johanna II handled the conditions exceptionally well and what I was most impressive with was the ability of the auto pilot to maintain course in those conditions with a 3/4 sea trying its hardest to round us up and then slew us back into a potential gybe.

“Sweetart” Inglis 39 Coffs Hbr to Newcastle July 2019

What a great boat! New owner Stephen rang me from my home port marina at Coffs Harbour asking if there was any chance of me assisting him with the delivery to Newcastle ‘tomorrow’.

‘Oui Ca Va’ Oceanis 43 Sydney to Yamba July 2019

New owner Jay asked me to assist with the delivery of Oui Ca Va up to Yamba. On board also were two of Jay’s adult children Brodie and Rachael who were delightful company as well as excellent crew who all took their fair share of watches and other onboard activities. Conditions were totally not as forecast and our perfect SE 15 knots turned out to be quite bumpy, fully on the nose for the first couple of days, but finally went very light easterly and we had a great final run up to Yamba....
