Dennis and Diane sailed a sixteen foot yacht from Sydney to Cairns. They set out with a few dodgey bits of equipment and an Alan Lucas cruising guide. Dennis wrote the log. Diane wrote the very funny novel of the adventure. Inside its pages you will find a humorous account of the journey laced with invaluable information for the fellow intrepid sailor. I'd suggest a slightly bigger boat - but so long as it floats it can be done.

    This book is a day by day account of a couple sailing from Sydney to Cairns. It chronicles the experiences they have in sailing/motoring a small 4.8m bilge keeler up the NSW and QLD coasts. It highlights how people with minimal money can still have an adventurous break from city life, living and travelling off what nature provided. An easy if a bit repetitive read.

    A cheerful read. I am an experienced off the beach sailor with an eye to doing some coastal cruising in Queensland. This book has certainly whet the appetite. You don't need a yachtsman's dictionary, but I did use my navigational charts ( in my iPhone and iPad), to keep an eye on the passage. Would like to have been given a little more info on the yacht design. Doccelli
