Larry Roberts and Mary Anne Unrau have been sailing their Waterline 43 cutter all over the world since they first launched her 18 years ago.  They have sailed more than 120,000 miles, they have crossed every meridian, sailed south to Antarctica, north to Spitzbergen, squeezed through the ice in the North-West Passage and recently sailed to Townsville, Australia non-stop from Victoria so they could do some scuba diving and continue to explore the islands around Australia. Their Pacific circuit took them out to the Coral Sea and over to New Zealand before heading across to Valdivia and Puerto Natales, Chile and home to Victoria.

Larry and Mary Anne want to take us to some of their favorite Australian Islands starting from Lord Howe Island in the Tasman Sea and continuing through the Coral Sea and inside the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsunday Islands and Lady Musgrave Island at the south end of the Reef.  They will show us the Kimberley in the northwest of the continent, the amazing aboriginal art of the North and West of Australia and will tell us about visiting the Cocos-Keeling Islands as well as Flinders Island, Maria Island and, of course, Tasmania itself!

These two sailors are keen explorers and scuba divers as well as excellent photographers above and below the waves so please join us as we head “Down Under” for what promises to be a fascinating evening.
