I am not sure if that will repel pirates or not but it would be a ballsy effort either way.

Bon Voyage Gaz and Jo, looking forward to your blog. Dreaming of the day we can do a Circle Pacific just need to sort out a couple of small details like the time and the money! Also dreaming of world cruise to or from UK with time in UK and Europe but probably need more of that time and money stuff for that!

Have a great cruise.

Seems like a long time ago that you booked this Pacific Circle cruise.

Beautiful sunny warm weather on the Coast today, after a couple of miserable rainy days, so hope you have good weather.

Not a good start for someone. Trust they will be OK.
Just checked the bridge cam and they have calm seas and a bright sunny QLD day. They have just passed Yeppoon.
