Just arrived at Hamilton Islands in the Whitsundays. Departed Hobart,Tasmania on April 18 and then had a great 4 day sail nonstop up to Sydney in great following winds and seas. One night pit stop in Sydney to retrovision and take on an additional crew member and then 6 days nonstop to Mackay, Queensland--again in great following winds and seas. A bit lumpy in the final 24 hours but overall a wonderful sail riding the southerlies all the way. Took a 2 day rest in Mackay and then have island hopped up to Hamilton over the past few days where the southeast trades are perfect!

Still cruising in Tasmania and loving it! Has generally been a very settled beautiful Autumn here but nights are starting to cool down now. Will fly back to Colorado for most of the Southern Winter to have a Northern Summer and then do another Summer cruising here next season in this incredible place! Hope all is well with everyone!

Sailed down the East Coast of mainland Australia in early January and in Mid-January made the crossing from Eden to Wineglass Bay, Tasmania. Have had a wonderful time sailing throughout SE Tasmania and enjoyed some great diving ,fishing, cycling ,and hiking in this wonderful land! Have met very many very nice Tassie sailing folks on their boats and looking forward to spending another year here exploring before moving on. One season is far too short to see all that Tasmania has to offer.

Been back aboard Seeker in Sydney Harbor for the past month after a great Northern Hemisphere Summer and Autumn on land in the mountains of Colorado and the northern lakes of Minnesota. Weather has been beautiful here for sailing in Sydney this past month--very dry actually--this part of Australia could use more rain. Very little activity out in the Harbor except for weekends and most nights we have great anchorages to ourselves or shared with another boat or two. Have seen no other foreign cruising boats here just yet this season. Some of the Sydney to Hobart boats showing up for daytime training out on the Harbor and out the heads which is fun to watch. A Chinese team blew out their very large spinnaker right next to us a couple days ago--torn to shreds. I guess they need a little more practice!

Flying to Bay of Islands,NZ this week for about 10 days of sailing and diving with friends there--need to check on my Paua, Cray, and Scallop spots! Then back here for Christmas,start of Sydney to Hobart race, and New Year. Then sailing down to Tasmania--most likely be there through this southern Summer and next. After that maybe sail back to NZ....who knows for sure!

Merry Christmas to all and safe sailing!

After a great Summer sailing in Australia, Seeker is taking a well deserved rest for the Winter tucked away in Sydney Harbor. Will resume cruising in about 6 months sailing down to Tasmania and spending the southern Summer there hopefully.

Fair winds to all the boats heading up to the tropics for the season!
