Cruising Division 'Under the arms of the sky'

Starting on 25 July 2018 18:20:00
Cruising Division presentation
'Under the Arms of the Sky: a Sailing Adventure'


This is the journey that saw Intermediate Member Hugh Macready and his wife Kate step outside their comfort zone in every respect. Ditching jobs, saying goodbye to family in Sydney, and reducing their worldly belongings to what would fit on a 13m sailing boat. It was a huge leap of faith for a new couple in their 30s. Throwing off the dock-lines to sail to...well, they really didn't know where at the time.

While they enjoyed hundreds of beautiful sunsets, making new friends and rare encounters with the wild in nine countries, it wasn't all smooth sailing. Dodging pirated waters and fierce storms, spending weeks at a time crossing lonely oceans. Let's just say, it challenged them.

So, what does two years at sea do to a relationship? They wrote about their experiences in their book 'Under the Arms of the Sky: A Sailing Adventure'.
