The last few days have been a bit busy. We flew up to Brisbane on Saturday and hired a car. Pat dropped Debi at the supermarket to start provisioning and then went off to get the watermaker which is now all fixed. Pat was only gone an hour but got back to find this .....

Then it was back to the boat to dump all the groceries and then off to Julian and Julia's for supper.
Debi spent the whole of Sunday cooking meals for the trip. Amazingly she managed to cook eight meals in a day, vacuum packed them all and attempted to freeze them. The poor fridge was struggling and so Julian and Julia kindly lent us the use of their freezer. Note to self .... remember to pick up the food!
Yesterday we dropped the hire car back and met our new crew member, Gwyn, from the airport. We think he is still in shock having flown in from North Wales to find it's 27 degrees here.
We have received our weather routing from our meteorologist, Roger Badham and so are set to go. There probably won't be anymore blogs for a while but our progress will be automatically updated on this page .....
