New Friends

Jack and Jude Binder S.Y Banyandah

“Life was meant to be good friends and great adventures. ” Unknown 

Hello again all you amazing peeps,

We have been on the boat for now 2 months and it has been GREAT! Don’t get me wrong, there have been challenges but I have even loved those.

I have 2 major highlights in this time:

The first is my first sail – regardless that the clew tore of the sail in the end, it was awesome……and addictive.

The second is meeting Jack and Jude Binder. The kids call them Mr. Jack and Mrs. Jude – they love it. Here is a couple that have been sailing for 40 years,circumnavigated the globe and are still doing it in their 70’s.

They were here in Eden for a month and have just spent a harrowing 3 days crossing Bass Strait to Tassie with 5m seas and 60 knot gusts – WOW!

They have been a wealth of information, providing tips on sailing and boat setup as well as being great to just talk too.

The kids LOVE them. Mr. Jack & Mrs. Jude named our kids Swabs after their first job on the boat. They even made a video and put it on YouTube – watch the 10 SWABS here. p1180145

They truly are a wonderful couple and to have friends like them is remarkable. It’s something I didn’t expect to happen here in Eden.

No matter how crazy you think your life is,  there is always someone 10 times as crazy just waiting to inspire you to more.

If you want to follow Mr. Jack and Mrs. Jude on their adventures, you can do that here.

Have a crazy fun day.
