We got paid to Sail the Greek Isles - the video

Life has been a little hectic since we returned to Australia a few short weeks ago from our summer in Greece. We've enjoyed time with family, got some work done on 'Our Dreamtime' and have even been away to Melbourne to celebrate with our daughter on the occasion of her 30th birthday.

In between Rob is still working on his full blog about what it was like to lead a charter flotilla around some of the world's best cruising grounds. Deciding what to include and what to leave out from the wealth of material is proving a task. Hopefully he will have it ready to post soon.

Karen meanwhile has also been busy putting together video and images for our YouTube record of our summer that flew buy so quickly. The good news is that we were able to finish off the voicing and final touches and got it uploaded today. Apart from a little bit of footage from our cheap GoPro clone, and a few pics and clips kindly provided by some of our charter clients, the whole thing was shot on our IPhone and stitched together in IMovie but we're confident the incredible natural beauty of Greece carries the day.

Please click on the image below to have a look. We hope you enjoy it. If you do be sure to give us a thumbs up on YouTube and subscribe to our channel. Much appreciated.

Spending Winter in a Gibraltar Marina - Published in Cruising Helmsman - Australia

We have recently realised we have neglected to post a number of the articles Rob has had published so we will try and catch up on those over the next few days. Here's the first.

When we were cruising in the Mediterranean on Alcheringa we spent one winter in Gibraltar. Crusing Helmsman published Rob's article below after our return to Australia.






If you would like to read more details of our winter spent in Gibraltar you can catch up on these blogs from our time in Queensway Quay Marina.
