Today I flew up to Cairns to join Magic Roundabout. The flight up was good with views of the coastline the whole way till we started the decent into Cairns which is surrounded by big, gray, wet clouds! Its crazy to think that the distance that the plain covered in 90 minutes is going to take us over a mouth to sail! Not that I'm complaining. This week I will be kept busy with jobs on the boat, helping to promote OceansWacth with local yachting community, meeting my school teachers who are based up here and of course school work! The skipper and other crew for the trip will be arriving over the next few days and we plan to leave, weather depending on Saturday.
