Just 11 sleeps to go
Well it is nearly time to get going again. We leave Sydney for Istanbul on 22nd April where we will catch a bus to Marmaris where Eye Candy is waiting for us. We have lots to do in a short time to get the boat ready for the East Mediterranean Yacht Rally. The EMYR is a rally of 80 yachts and we will travel with them from Marmaris, Turkey, eastwards to Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, Israel and finally Egypt by the end of June.
Clares sister, Pat, and here husband, Ron, will be with us for the entire trip and we are looking forward to having them aboard. We will enjoy their company and help.
We have arranged to meet up with our friends Patrick and Leanne in Egypt at the end of the rally to tour Egypt for 2 weeks and also visit Kathryn Turner (from my time with Boral) in Alexandria.
With this blogsite we hope to keep you all up to date as we go by using our yacht email on a more frequent basis.
Andrew (and the mighty Clare)
