  1. Hi Richard. Remember me? Bronwyn Clarke, once connected to Blitz, Lidgard 42. I now live in Deep Bay Cygnet Tasmania with my partner Jeff. We originally intended to live on Katafigio a 46′ Colin Archer however land with cabin came into the frame and we bought it. Katafigio is for sale and we are thinking of bringing our Swanson 38 down to our mooring in Cygnet. Your blog was a joy to read and I was surprised at the end to read that you are setting up house in southern Tassie, probably just around the corner. Cheers Bronwyn

  2. Richard,
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your sail around Oz.
    My wife and I are in the process of trying to locate old lost friends from Hobart. I worked at the Four Seasons Downtowner Hotel with a Lyn Hewson during 1974. She was from Bicheno and was married to John Hewson. They lived at Lindisfarne. They were both mad keen sailors.
    Are you related or do you know them? My wife is Sandra and we now live in Brisbane. I have also been sailing the past 10 years on my friend’s yachts, all named Beau Geste. If you know Lyn or John, pls give them my contact details. Thanks and happy safe sailing!
