Feb 21, 2007 - Magnetic island

Yesterday, it was another early start, had to check in for the bus at 6.30 to leave at 7am. To tell you the truth, was as drunk as I had been going to bed, so I was swaying my way to the bus. Most of us girls felt pretty rough, and I know that I didn't see too much on the way down to the island, sleeping for the majority of it! Was very much needed to recover. We finally arrived at Magnetic Island late in the afternoon and checked into our hostel, which is located right on the beach. Really great location and definitely chilled out! We...

Jul 15, 2005 - Magnetic Island

Oct 17, 2001 - A moonlight sail on the Coral Sea

Much to our delight, we found that the incredible people at the Yacht Club in Townsville take fledging sailors and others out for a sail on Wednesday nights. We arrived at the Marina around 5 PM and found numerous people waiting to go sailing. We chatted with a few of the skippers of the sailboats and then found that we were on our way down to a boat slip with a delightful man named Russell. He had been sailing for over 30 years and raced his Yacht on numerous occasions. Walking along the floating dock to the boat slip we noticed several...
