Coastal Cruising North

Well it's that time again when Aussies start thinking about cruising north.

The Cyclone season has been and gone until November and the weather is perfect for the journey from Brisbane to the Great Barrier Reef.  Most cruisers use Hamilton Island in the Whitsunday Island group as a base because of it's fantastic facilities. The Whitsunday Group is 74 amazing islands with anchorages galore and generally pristine uncrowded locations.

A must see is Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island. A 7  km pristine white sand beach of pure silica sand.  It is so dazzling that it is impossible to look at it in sunshine without 'sunnies.'

The attached pic shows a few fellows having a gentle 5 day cruise to the Whitsundays !!!!  lol

If you have used Float Plan to find a boat or a crew member, or had a good experience using the website, being part of the community or you just love what we are trying to do (make sailing accessible to everyone), I would really appreciate a quick note that I could use as a testimonial on the new website. Thank you, Andrew
