Malua returns to Batemans Bay
I went round to The Basic to meet Sundancer ii when they arrived after a very wet ride south along the same NSW coast as I. Good to see them again after last meeting in French Polynesia.
It was now time for me to enter Sydney Harbour; the start of this adventure sailing around (not round) the world. It was a slow sail into the southerly and I entered through the heads on the 7 November 2014 and back to the Fish Market. I was welcomed by the family and the youngest crew member Theo who enjoyed a short sail on the harbour.
The Bay Post came to interview me which was an experience. All they wanted to know was the dangers faced and the disasters. Mine was not a great story but got printed anyway.
Malua is now undergoing a major refit and upgrade to all the little things I did not complete when I set off in September 2004 sailing south to Tasmania Hobart then on to New Zealand and the circumference of the Tasman Sea.
This blog will be updated as I achieve some mile stones with Malua. But keep in touch either through my Facebook or Malua web site or Malua's Facebook.
