Chartered: 21 Sep 2008

A year in the planning and every day of waiting was worth it.
We had no set itinerary other than this time we wanted to visit the Lindeman and Shaw Island area. My son was allowed to bring a mate along (Tom) Hiring the paddleboards allowed the boys to go off exploring and the extra bed in the front port cabin on Mystique meant they had a room to themselves. My sister and brother in law (Maz and Ian from Eungella just down the road) were thrilled with their first Whitsundays charter experience and Maz kept a detailed diary of the trip. Rowan (my best man) was with us for the first 6 nights and then replaced by Craig and Jen from New Hampshire. Hadn't seen Craig for 10 or so years and we had never met his wife Jen. The lure of a cruise in the Whitsundays was too much for them to resist so they made the journey across from the USA and caught up with us at Hamilton Island.
We saw whales, dolphins, snorkelled, fished, ate well and had a great time even during the character building trip through Fitzalan Passage to Solway. We actually put the sails up on three occasions and while we weren't winning any races we may even be tempted to read up on how to sail properly for the next trip.
There is no doubt we will be back and the timing of fourth charter with Cumberland has already been discussed. Thanks to Tina and all of the Cumberland team for making the trip painless.
