From Yeppoon we sailed up to Scawfell Island; Sabine’s stomach getting bigger and bigger. The whole family can not wait to meet the newborn soon!
On the sail to Thomas Island (same name like our Webdesigner) we used the first time Matteo Miceli’s gift: OUR NEW GENAKER!

We left Airlie Beach out and went straight to Cape Gloucester, where we anchored in front of a great Eco Resort with a big pool for Salina and Andri.
We often sailed overnight when the kids where as lip and made it finally to Magnetic Island in front of Townsville, where Jacqui and Ric with his to children Keshia and Jonah joined us. We hope to be in Cairns in the next days to visit some schools and do another SGS event.
