July 2021 'Pintado' Cavalier 37 Coffs Harbour to Tweed

Coffs Harbour to Tweed July 2021...

Brad called in a bit of a panic. Having sailed his boat up from Hobart with the intention of having a family holiday at the Whitsundays, when the Qld border closure became imminent, he grabbed the family, hired a car and got north of the border. He then phoned me to ask if I could get his boat across the border. I explained about the border bubble and that I would get Pintado into the Tweed and arrangements were then made for a Qld skipper to meet me and take it to Southport.

A most enjoyable delivery on a boat (type) Ive always wanted to experience ever since Kay cotter sailed 'First Lady' around the world. Great weather and thanks to Phil for making himself available at short notice, his excellent crew work and companionship.
