Notes from the Webmaster December 21 2022

The Table of Contents now includes all external lnks to other websites. Up until the COVID-19 Pandemic I have been sailing with my partner Kathy Beatrix Perkins in Eastern Australia and the islands of the Coral Sea. We have now moved to a small cottage in Tasmania and will keep on sailing in Beatrix, exploring the wonderful islands and anchorages around Tasmania


As always, please report any bugs or suggestions or send contributions to me at any time. Contact information is at the very bottom of the page, next to the Donation button.
