Sailing Video Clips
Jack and Jude take you on a tour of this very remote Coral Sea Islet during sea bird breeding season. Thousands of majestic Frigate-birds, the males with red inflated throat sacks, look after their featherless fledglings, as well as rare Red Footed Boobies, Crested Terns and so many others in vast numbers. Jude explains their different traits in this lay person’s tour of a far flung breeding colony.
Our grandchildren wanted to see stormy sailing as they are so used to seeing Banyandah sitting placid like a sleeping giant. So we put together this video of our 660 nautical mile passage up the Coral Sea, driven by gale force winds. We even hauled in a giant fish at the end! Sailing Fast outside the Great Barrier Reef (There’s a YouTube version also)
We used our very long pole to get the GoPro camera away from the boat for a better perspective. Haven’t had the courage yet to fly the camera from the kite while at sea….
Sailing from the most distant Coral Sea reef
Jack and Jude explored the Coral Sea reefs and islets, sailing 1730 nautical mile and looking at 8 reefs. This is a short clip of their homemade yacht sailing away for the most distant reef under Australia jurisdiction. SELECT HD for best display. Please leave comment or “like”
Super fast journey around Australia by sail and on land to Kimberley gorges and rock art, world’s most unique coral reef, then sail the southern ocean to Tasmania to climb mountains and explore rainforest rivers. Beautiful scenery across hugely diverse continent.
