Melanie and Cathy's travels to Australia and New Zealand (and now Cathy in South East Asia too!) 2005/6 travel blog

About to set sail

We got off the overnight bus and headed around to our hostel to leave our luggage there while we're away sailing. We then went and had some brekfast, checked in with Aussie Adventure sailing and got showered, etc, ready to go on our boat.

We met our deckhand - Corey, who, incidentally, has the most annoying laugh on the planet - and boarded the Dreamcatcher. We got our stinger suits, met our Captain and the rest of our group and had a briefing before setting sail just after lunch time.

The boat was pretty small, but quite comfortable and we didn't do much apart from sunbathe for the rest of the afternoon. We had a lovely dinner, cooked by Corey and then chatted on deck for a while. Bed time wasn't much fun as it was incredibly hot below deck and quite cramped. We had the option of sleeping on deck but it was threatening to rain and there were way too many insects!
