About the boat "Quinco"

Quinco is an Adams 40 skippered by David and crewed by the Admiral, Rose. Quinco is a wishbone cutter rigged sloop. She was built in Fremantle in 1978. Sailed to the Cocos Islands then moved home port to Pittwater, from there, onto Melbourne then we are where we are, cruising that is! Constructed from "Airex" foam core sandwiched GRP with a ply deck, she weighs in at 12 Tons. Powered by a Nanni 4 cylinder 50 HP diesel engine.

We Begin - Mooloolaba

At last, we left the MBTBC in Manly on Saturday the 1st of June 2013 @ 0530, headed off north to Mooloolaba with little wind, going North along side Bribie Island, the main slatting so much, dropped it, now motoring with bare poles. The swell right on the beam, very uncomfortable, rattling all in the cupboards down below. Much the same all the way until we arrived in the river, moored at the Kawana Waters Marina, nice and quiet and calm. Waiting for the weather (and swell) to abate before leaving for the Wide Bay Bar (maybe Thursday)..

February 2013

Well, another year and no updates on this blog, you get that!
Been to Perth for a month over Christmas and New Year, back on the boat since the Australia Day Long Weekend, just in time for the big storm and high tide. Marina was safe, but, very noisy and rock and roll. Speaking of Rock and Roll, went to a class at the Wynnum RSL, unfortunately, the timing was not good and found it was their last class at that venue, so end Rock and Roll and onto Zumba at the Manly RSL hall, hard work and sweat, but we enjoyed it.
Till next time..

Still in New Cal

After leaving Noumea, we have sailed to the top of Grand Terre and are currently sitting in the marina at Pandop (Koumac). We have seen a lot of Tricot Rayes (Sea Snakes) and thousands of frogs after some rain.
