  • Finish of 1st and start of second circumnavigation
  • A nice magnificent refreshing day "out of this world"
  • Joined by massive # of spectacular yachts & some huge spectator craft. Specially Perie Banou skippered by Colin and my crew.
  • Thousands of people were on the North Mole but I was directed to a rounding buoy too far away & I was most disappointed. Rounded buoy off Fremantle.
