Position 12:26S 130:51E
We have now arrived in Darwin. We actually arrived on Friday but
then had to be on anchor for the mussel treatment. A diver comes to the boat
and squirts stuff up into all the sea intakes on the boat and then we have to
sit and wait and not move the boat or use any sea inlets for 14 hours
So no generator – no aircon in very high
humidity and no breeze so a pretty hot and restless night for all.
The following day all of us (10 rally boats) headed
with 15 minute intervals to the lock.
We are in Tipperary
marina which you can only access through a very small lock which does not take
yachts much bigger than ours.
We are now in safe and sound – ready to tackle
jobs to be done on the boat and hope to do some touring round next weekend.
Pictures to follow shortly..
