Shorncliffe is a beautiful seaside village at the mouth of Cabbage Tree creek just north of Brisbane. It his a well located marina, close by shops and trains and safe to leave the boat to go exploring.
The 1st time we met Steve was in Niue aboard Heat Wave and again in Musket Cove, Fiji with his partner Nicky. We sail together from Cabbage Tree to Tangalooma on Morton Island to spend Christmas and returned on 26 December. Nicky and Steve have done a great job and we had a great Aus/Nz Christmas aboard theirs Leopard 42 catamaran.
After Morgan left on the 28 December and Veronica on the 29 December, I went to Buderim, Sunshine Coast to celebrate the new coming year with them.
Other great friends we met in Musket Cove where Doug and Diane aboard Benneteau 47 Seafarer, we had such great time, partying, racing and meeting new friends that came to Doug's Birthday in Fiji. Once again I felt very comfortable leaving the boat and gone visit them in Figal Head, Goald Coast where I stayed for few days, done all medical tests with Diane, meeting their friends, walk and swim in the beach a short walk from home and off course the great meals they prepared.
I left Shorncliffe to Coochiemmudlo Island in the end of the Moreton Bay run, stayed overnight and left next morning to Southport in the Gold Coast.After a good night rest. I motor sailed to Tweeds Heads River were I am at anchor overlooking their home.
