Hamilton Island - 20° 20' 48" S 148° 57' 33" E
Not the pleasure cruise from Cairns to The Whitsundays you signed up for but instead 911 nautical miles bashing into the SE wind and current from Thursday Island to Hamilton Island. We thank you for your great skill on the helm, your willingness to take four hour watches at the deepest, wee-est hours and for keeping us fed.
We could not have done it without you and greatly appreciate you joining us.
Always remember your father's wise words - an adventure is better than a holiday!
