Chartered: 28 Dec 2010

The Danes are back and this time on Kick'n'Back.
11 years have passed since our Danish family cruised the wonderful Whitsundays on one of Cumberlands many yachts. No need to say we had a great time in 1999 and we simply had to come back for another bareboat charter with Cumberland Charter Yachts.
So 2010 was going to be the year where the Danes are returning for 9 days of fantastic cruising in the Whitsundays.
The wessel and our home for the next 9 days was again a Seawind 1000, "Kick'n'Back"
Knowing the Seawind 1000 from our previous charter and with all the help from the staff at Cumberland, departure was too easy and we set of from Abel Point Marina 28'th of December, all very excited about finally being back in these pristine waters and surroundings.
These 9 days were also going to end our Down Under trip that started in cold and snowy Copenhagen 4 weeks earlier. Our charter turned out to be all we had dreamed of and hoped for and what an ideal and fantastic way to round of a great Aussie trip.
In our 9 days on Kick'n'Back we managed to visit all of the more known places and even a new one to us, which was Windy Bay, which we had all to ourselves on New Years Eve.
Nibblies, champagne and some good wine on the beach in the afternoon and some succulent seafood on the Barbie later on. No other noisy boats nearby and a magnificent southern sky of stars above. What a privilege to experience moments like this. A perfect end to 2010
for the Danes onboard Kick'n'Back. HAPPY NEW YEAR !
Weatherwise we felt rather lucky considering the wet weather this summer in QLD.
We actually had pretty good conditions most of the time and especially the last 4 days exploring the Northern Bays of Hook Island were just picture perfect.
All good things come to an end, and so did our charter.
Kick'n'Back served indeed as a perfect home and made cruising the Whitsundays so easy.
Thanks to Cumberland for making the dream come through, again..
The Danes will be back....
