1974/90 Voyages of Banyandah

Sailing around the World in Ever Increasing Circles

From first launch in 1973 until 1990, Banyandah was the “home on the water” for the Four J’s – who sailed around the world in ever increasing circles, exploring Earth while educating two sons, Jason and Jerome. We sailed more than 120,000 nautical miles and visited around 80 countries. Besides numerous remote rock outcrops and coral cays, the Galapagos and Easter Island standout, and our seven months living in Japan fascinated us.
