Ten mates, five days, and one amazing catamaran..... the scene was set for the perfect winter escape. What started as a far-fetched daydream back in March, became the sailing adventure of a lifetime this August.

With supplies loaded and the bar fully stocked, we set sail on the turquoise waters that bring the Whitsundays their fame. A quick sail to South Molle island brings our skills up to speed, and from there we are going solo to tack and jibe our way into tropical bliss.

With the freedom to go where only mariners can, we took in the sights at Nara Inlet, Mays Bay and the picturesque South Molle Island. Like kids in a candy store, we soaked up resort life with a round of golf and explored deserted coves in our handy tender.

Immersed in the beauty of this unspoiled wilderness, we hit the jackpot as we sailed towards the famous Whitehaven Beach. Against a back drop of pristine coastline, a Humpback whale was spotted frolicking and breaching with her new-born calf.

Whitehaven beach proved why it was voted best beach in the world, with a never-ending stretch of pure white sand that lent itself to hours spent sunbaking and bathing in crystal clear waters..definately a place we would have been happy to anchor for the week!

Heading north we cruised passed curious turtles and dolphins to the remote Cataran, Butterfly and Blue Pearl Bays. Below the surface, coral reefs straddled their beaches, alive with schools of tropical fish and a colourful array of corals and plantlife. Snorkelling was the activity of choice, with plenty of time to test our culinary skills on the BBQ and relax on the boats massive trampolines.

With wining and dining a plenty, and i-tunes playlists to set the mood for our boating adventures, watching the world go by from our luxury vessel was the perfect escape from the wintery south. With a beer in one hand, and a snag in the other, we all were left thinking one common thought, Is it too early to plan for next year?
