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!

Mackay Marina - Weather waiting, waiting, waiting!

Still here in the marina waiting for the rain and wind to abate. Wind is still SE, the direction we want to go. When it drops below 10 knots or swings to the North we will get moving again. Waiting, Waiting.

Bowen Harbour

Well, since Newry we have been around the Whitsundays for a while where we came across a lot of whales, so far the tally is about 40. Next, onto the Gloucester Passage and the Eco Resort, now in Bowen on the piles. Had another good look around Bowen and stocked up with everything. If the "Blowin at Bowen" slows a little we may be off tomorrow (Thursday) and head back to the Passage and then back into the Whitsundays for a while.

On the piles in Bowen Harbour.
