When it comes “Destination” articles in sailing magazines, nothing beats a story about off the beaten track wilderness areas. It has appeal to seasoned sailors as well as to those dreaming of future adventures. And the Tasmanian West Coast is one of those destinations that is less travelled, a bit daunting, yet breathtaking.
When we embarked on our Tasmanian Voyage on 27 February 2018, we knew it would be dazzling. Over two months we sailed our catamaran Take It Easy right around this wild island state. With its history, its vast wilderness areas, its dramatic coastline and abundant wildlife, there is so much to see and experience.
Yachting Magazine Cruising Helmsman published our article about winter cruising in southern waters in their February 2018 issue. This summarises some of the learnings from the wintry start of our life afloat into 10 tips.
Starting our full-time cruising life as the whales were migrating from Antarctica to the East Coast of Australia was such a highlight that we decided to put together a Photobook about it.
Our life took a momentous turn in July 2017, when we moved on board Take It Easy to start our full time cruising life. We put together a summary of our experience for the yachting magazine Australian Multihull World.
We have had another good month for publications! Our articles seem to always cluster around the May to August period, typically after we have returned from holiday cruising and put pen to paper. It might become a little more spread out throughout the year now that cruising is our life!
May and June were big months in the yachting press for Take It Easy, with three articles published. It is always a great feeling to see our stories and photographs in print.
