It is said that the best laid plans of mice and men can come to naught or that God laughs whenever you make a plan, but then you have to start somewhere. For us, that was Melbourne, Australia.....

Once the Melbourne-Osaka race dropped out of contention, we gently slipped back to   Plan A - namely following the Trades west.

Well, we got as far as Darwin before there was the crack of 5 ribs but at last we're on our way again. To date, we've planned as far as the Med - we'd probably push our luck again to make too many structured plans after that.  Ideas like the Baltic are festering, maybe the Black Sea.  Who knows - we'll work that all out sometime later this year.
