North Queensland, heading towards warm water

Well, looks like 2020 sailing outside Aus is not going to happen.
At the moment I'm at anchor on a reef with a sand cay of Cairns, only person out here. Keep in touch will update if anything change
Looking forward to sail/dive north and south from Cairns.
This summer have been great sailing weather, light winds , sun and only little rain on the water in North Queensland. Water is 29c but will rise to 30 over summer.
Easy sailing, clean water, just need to catch some fish

This is not a tourist sailing trip. I live onboard year round. Might even do some maintenance, while on anchor.
Costs is just share food. No marina fees

WITH THE VIRUS KEEPING OS IN AUSTRALIA IT WILL BE INTERESTINGLY TO SEE WHEN WE CAN DEPARTURE Aus.

Yacht Seagoon, Roberts 38 Offshore. Been sailing SP since 1993, 7 years ago I started this little volunteer project in Louiseade Archepilago, PNG. Installing solar system for people to have lights in small village.
Late July early August, or when the hardstanding have room to paint new Antifauling, I'll be heading north along The Ribbon Reefs, one of the best dive sites in Qld. We'll be going as far as Lizard island, the best anchorage in Aus. When the SE trade winds turn or slow down I'll be going south again.
If you like to learn sailing , sail handling, navigation, and not just like to sit in the sun, come along

  • Boat descriptionYacht Seagoon is a long term cruising yacht. 71000nm under the keel so far. Been cruising Pacific waters and Australia since 1991 Seagoon is safe, strong and will always get to the next anchorage. Behind this is lots of work keeping the yacht in good condition so I'm always ready to take of for a new trip. I have a satellite phone for emergency and a few text messages. Life jackets w safety harness. All safety gear, no life raft, use my big inflatable dinghy as a life raft. only 2 rules while sailing. No 1 "Don't fall of" No 2 "Read No 1 again slowly" I have dive compressor and 2 tanks, weight belts. Good dinghy w 9.8 hp outboard motor. Main engine was installed in 2012, Volvo Penta D1-30F just a little 3 cylinder diesel. Since 2013 I have run a volunteer solar project around the islands of Louiseades Archipelago, Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea. Up till now I have 60 villages with lights in the houses of some kind, all renewable power. Cruising Helmsman magazine gave me a nice write up in there March mag- MAY 2020: Another year of helping small islands in South Pacific. Yacht Seagoon, Roberts 38 Offshore. Been sailing SP since 1993, 7 years ago I started this little project. Have a great sponsor, he loves my project and special the way all his sponsorship go straight to the people, no expenses , no air fares, no admin fees. Departure first week in May, or when the weather is right, no need to go out there and get hammered. Would like to find a Women/ Partner, someone with a little salt water in there blood. this is a long time cruising add, wont be back to October sometime. keep sailing all summer, when the weather i right.
