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.

Quick one to Norfolk Island (Via Air New Zealand).

In March (for my birthday) we fly over to Norfolk for a week. A great short break from the boat and a chance to view some of the history first hand.
It also gave us an opportunity to realise it is no place for cruising yachts!

Hi you two,
Nice pictures looks like you are enjoying yourselves. Have not heard you on the net for a while. We are currently at Lizard Island with 20 - 30 knot winds until Saturday when we continue towards Cape York.
Take care safe sailing.
Cheers John & Nancy 'Alana Rose'
