“With less than 200NM to go and obviously sensing land, our avian companion who I’ve named Monsieur Rouge, decides it’s time to leave. He tightrope walks down the starboard rail, makes a strange clacking sound and flies away. We’re alone again…”

About Jill: I’ve been a full time blue water cruiser since April 2010 and with my husband Paul, have now amassed close to 50,000NM under the keel of our 48′ yacht, Elevation. Sailing became a retirement goal, and we were blessed to be able to farewell working life in our early 50’s, casting off the lines and living the dream ever since. I hail from Fremantle and have been a member of the Fremantle Sailing Club since 2006. I’m a newbie to writing and in recent times I’ve been really enjoying blogging about both bluewater adventures and each destination we’ve explored – my blog is here.
