  • The view from the droneParticipants on Tawe Nunnugah will recall that part of the fun was being buzzed by the drone, generally controlled by the safety RIB operator Saul.  He has very generously given us a copy of his footage: view at https://goo.gl/dg6o4Y .  Depending on your musical taste you will either want to have your speakers dialed up to 11, or toned down a bit.

  • Remembering tawe nunnugah 2017Murdo McLeod is a photographer and journalist from the UK who came with us on the Raid, rowing in a Skiff crew.  He has written a beautifully illustrated article which can be found at https://terrarowing.tumblr.com/post/161421734858/tawe-nunnugah-a-rowing-voyage . And for those of us who aren’t Facebook people (and are thus hopelessly out of date)  Alex Blackburn’s video at  https://youtu.be/_ZcPRSnZ-Q8 is terrific.

  • The view from ‘Imagine’: Quarantine Bay to South ArmWe were an all female crew with Celia as skipper. We set out for Dennes Point, and to our surprise the sea was calm, the sun came out and there was no rain. We came out of Quarantine Bay into the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and into the path of three playful dolphins. We stayed in the lee of the land and had lunch aboard in some quiet water. We set off not knowing what to expect but having been warned that there was unsettled weather expected. We rowed, the waves got bigger, the wind got stronger, the white horses grew in number. The cox changed and we started surfing down the waves and steering towards the coast. The waves got …

  • The view from the camp: Simpson’s Point to Quarantine BayThe camp support staff had the best view of the Simpson’s Point camp, motoring in and out over the ridge: it was spectacular. In the morning after a 7.30 breakfast the now established routine of washing up and packing up the vehicles was easily accomplished with the assistance of everybody in camp. The analogy of ants moving a grasshopper was mentioned. Ros headed out to replenish stores, chef and cooking assistants went off to preprepare meals for the day, the support group went looking for fuel and gas, whilst the setup group found their way to the new camp with a truckload of luggage, camp equipment, mobile toilets and water supplies. The tea, coffee and office marquee was …

  • The view for Seastar: Randall’s Bay to Simpson’s PointSeastar had been tucked away in Egg and Bacon Bay for the night, a millpond in south westerly weather, very close to Randall’s, most importantly within walking distance for dinner. In the morning we motored around for breakfast in 20 minutes. Got away before the rest of the fleet, giving us a brief feeling of superiority before we were passed by the Bay Raiders and the Core Sounds. It was a day of fair winds blowing us along at about five knots, despite leaving two reefs in. We passed Huon Island and then Arch Rock, covered in nesting gulls and resting cormorants, turned the corner at Gordon into the D’entrecasteaux Channel proper and headed directly for Simpson’s …

  • The view from Black Pearl: Dover to Randall’s BayAs with the day before, a bit of everything. A nice breeze out of harbour, then nothing at all around the corner and wallowing around. A stiff wind came down the river, induced us to put in a couple of reefs, and then lots of tacking backwards and forwards to get past the fish farms. After that a straight run into Randall’s Bay. Got the tent up in the Thomas’s beautiful sheep paddock, and then it bucketed with rain. Drama: we had run out of red wine, but to balance that we had a warming curry for dinner.

  • Tawe Nunnugah: the view from the safety boat (Seal)The most dramatic day was when the fleet was hit by a squall off Southport. The Montagu Whaler capsized in the middle of reefing drills off Southport Jetty – the main sheet jammed at an inopportune moment. People were taken off by driving the inflatable just over the gunwhales to make it easy for them to get in, leaving only the skipper aboard. The anchor had been deployed, but was tangled in other lines, and took some time to retrieve. Eventually ‘the Monty’ was slowly towed into harbour, still full of water. In the meantime Imagine had been caught on a surf beach, and another rescue boat, Flat Calm, had got into difficulties trying to assist them. It needed needed to …

  • The view from Swiftsure – Southport to DoverA very quiet seaward passage out of Southport. Dolphins and albatross along the way. The wind came up, straight out of Dover harbour. Swiftsure decided she did NOT want to go home, and we engaged in a series of tacks backwards and forwards across the entrance, very slowly making our way in. The destination was in sight but the wind was dropping and in the end we reluctantly accepted a tow into the beach. Esperance Yacht Club were great hosts, the providers of a very welcome shower, and the venue for wine and song that evening. Thanks to Matt and Gill for organising. We are learning about Swiftsure as we go.

  • First days: the view from Allecat(Allecat is a 20 foot Core Sound open sail boat)  We arrived in Franklin from Lennox Head in northern NSW after a 3 day drive to go straight to the LBT dinner. Caught up with a lot of people we had met before, helped around the shed and generally just settled in. Judy and I came along with Alex, our 24 year old daughter who did the TN 13.  The trip to Cockle Creek was fun in the rickety old bus made better by the Scallop pies on the way. The road has not improved I can report.  Cockle Creek was funny as we all arrived and descended on the most southerly national park in Australia only to find a …

  • Reef early, reef oftenRecent strong winds in southern Tasmaniaare a timely reminder of the importance of havinga good reefing system on your boat and knowing how to use it. Wind strength canchange quickly in the waters we will be traversing during the Raids. Even whenwe set out in the morning with a favourable forecast, it’s always possible thewind will get up and make everything a little too exciting during the day.  Knowing how to reduce sail quickly and under gusty conditionsis essential for ensuring you keep control of your vessel. Before the Raidcheck your reefing systems, making sure everything is running freely and thatall fittings are secure and are not going to tear

The organisers of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival prefervessels to remain on site until Monday afternoon making it difficult for us toget an early start and raising the likelihood that we would be facing a longhaul into a sea breeze on the first day out.

  • Help ‘Our Monty’ join the RaidTawe Nunnugah isn’t just a cruise in company, but a shared opportunity for participants to sail and row a variety of small boats in waters which would otherwise be too daunting.  We think that one of the most interesting of those boats is the Montagu Whaler, currently undergoing restoration in the Wooden Boat Centre. Every capital ship in the navies of the British Commonwealth used to carry a whaler for a variety of duties, and they were famously seaworthy and good for both rowing and sailing. Now they are a rarity.   Once it is complete ours will likely be the only working Whaler remaining in Australia. Help us restore ‘our Monty’ in time for the Raid by making a …

The not so good, for those on the Priority List (those who entered an EOI before 15 September), is that you should prepare to break into your piggy banks: we are about to bill you. The even worse news is that invoices will be accompanied by ‘Conditions of Participation’ and ‘Payment Policies’ documents. These things aren’t much fun.
