This morning an interesting yacht ghost-sailed past us into Dunk Island anchorage. Ghost-sailed, in that there was only a zephyr of puff.
She hailed from Ketchikan, Alaska, was named Searcher, and she looked a like a legendary Perry 41.
Such exotica excites, so I rowed over to say g'day to a delightful young couple who I learned were circumnavigating our small planet.
Turns out they were sailing a Robert Harris designed and Tanya built Vancouver 42, a Perry 41 look-alike.
Then before I had the wits to take a pic, they had weighed anchor to push on with their mission to cross the equator and reach Indonesia before the pending cyclone season.
Humbling what a small and interconnected planet we live in.
