Sailing the Whitesundays is an accomplishment that I am extremely proud of. What made it even more special and memorable is that I shared this wonderful adventure with my fiance.
When we decided on sailing the Whitesundays all on our own, I was terrified by the idea because we had absolutely no sailing experience (unless you count sailing a dinghy in high school). It took months of preparation and many sailing lessons.
Arriving on Hamilton Island, we were picked up from the airport and taken to the marina for briefing. The yacht was loaded with six days of rations and we were sent on our way to sail through the magnificent islands of the Whitsundays.
It’s a lifestyle I could get use to. At 5am every morning we woke to watch the sunrise. Throughout the day we took little moments to appreciate our beautiful surroundings. Everyday we sailed to a different location where we snorkelled, hiked, sun baked on the yacht, walked along a deserted beach, the world was our oyster.
This amazing experience has ignited my love for sailing and I envisage more sailing trips on the horizon.
