Thanks to my friend Michael, I checked with the local yacht club to see if they had any special nights or races where the captains took on crew or visitors to sail with them for an evening.
Turns out Port Douglas Yacht Club encourages their members to take visitors out every Wednesday evening. You have to be “picked” by the captain or crew and I was thrilled to be picked by a lovely couple, Nic and Robin, to be their guest on their 44 foot Catana catamaran named Andiamo. It was a gorgeous afternoon for a sail and me and about 10 other guests were treated to a 2 hour sail (free of charge) and then stayed for a great meal with our hosts at the yacht club (best food for the money so far).

Now its early to bed for me, as I head out very early morning for my first dive at the Reef.
