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.
