Jonathan Ross is our presenter. Jonathan‘s job was to help commission a brand new Privilege510 catamaran in Les Sables d‘Olonne, get it ready for it‘s first ocean passage and then skipper it 3500Nm to Montenegro. Onboard was the American owner and two of his friends. Hear about the trials and tribulations of getting a new boat ready for sea, crossing the Bay of Biscay with a green crew, dodging Orcas, living onboard with 3 Californians as well as highlights from stops in the Baleric Islands, Sardinia, Sicily and Croatia.

The plan is to circumnavigate Bass Strait, between Saturday the 2nd March to Sunday 17th March. Check out the November Albatross Page 29-32 for the Cruise Plan, summarised below:
The direction of travel, clockwise or anti clockwise, will depend on the prevailing weather at the time. The intention is to visit the Tamar or Port Sorrell, Rocky Cape, Stanly, The Fleurieu Group including Three Hummock & Hunter Islands, Refuge Cove - Wilsons Promontory, the Kent Group including Deal & Erith islands, and the Furneaux Group.
Vessels will rendezvous on the 2nd of March somewhere between Flinders Island and the Tamar River. The rendezvous anchorage and direction of circumnavigation will hopefully be announced to all participants around the 27th of February.
The start date allows one week for vessels participating in the East Coast Cruise to make their way to the Rendezvous on the 2nd March. Vesels not participating in the East Coast Cruise will make their way to the Rendezvous as appropriate.
The circumnavigation will finish on the 17th March between Flinders Island and the Tamar. Vessels may then make their way in company back down the East Coast or alternatively spend more time in the area (Gradiva is Likely to spend more time in the area)
Scott will facilitate vessels linking up to cruise in company for the passages up and down the East Coast. Vessels must be well prepared for all possible conditions throughout the cruise. Cruise Contacts are Scott and Rachel Poulter onboard Gradiva on 0419 513 983
Feel free to phone or email to discuss the cruise at any time. More information will be made available to those registered during coming months.
March Long weekend brings us the opportunity to visit Franklin on the Huon River and join with the Wooden Boat Centre to see what is currently under construction.

Return home on Monday after a very relaxing weekend up the scenic Huon River. Cruise Contact is Andrew Perkins on Amodet phone 0419 375 500. Registrations will open once all details are finalised.

The iron Pot Lighthouse, or more formally the Derwent Light has been part of the Port of Hobart for 192 years. Suzanne has made an extensive study of its history and written a book on the topic. It is the oldest existing lighthouse tower in Australia.
Standing at the entrance to the Derwent, it marks the start of the Port of Hobart and is a welcome sight to yachtsmen in the Sydney to Hobart race. Its history is also a history of the development of the maritime industry and the water-based activities of Tasmania.
Another in the Commodore‘s Series where the weather is considered prior to deciding the destination. Expect a week away with a full moon and enjoying the more stable autumnal weather.
