    Sailing Story - Away on a Whim

Where It Began
    The idea was born in the far south of Tasmania, Australia whilst Mike and I were cruising this fantastic island state, and has since led us to Northern Australia through to Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand so far.
    We hope that our Galleries and Sailing Adventure pages containing our Sailing Story may entice you to do the same one day!


Whimoway was purchased in Darwin for the sole purpose of taking us on a 10 year working holiday. She underwent a massive restoration and has looked after us ever since.
