September Photos

September was a good month. We had a very sociable First Friday, a very successful raft-up and of course it was the opening of the sailing season. So we have a bunch of great photos for you here . And as a special bonus, click on the slide show below. The crew of Nirvana's Kitchen and Hebe Haven in the first of our online cruise training series, showing how to attach a stern line (no doubt the YouTube video of this will go viral).

Janet Dell's account of the Jerasalem Bay weekend follows:

Fishing fleet in Coffs Harbour Dame Margot has been sending regular dispatches on her way North. The first two letters can be downloaded here:

Sydney Sandstorm

Sydney is experiencing a sandstorm of historic proportions and gale force winds are expected right through the day. I’m at the Club keeping an eye on Te Moana. Sofar it’s not too bad, gusting to 30 knots, but high tide might be a bit tricky later in the day. Check twitter for updates (http://twitter.com/temoana).
