Update from SYC Member Hugh Pilsworth – Blue Flyer

Thursday, 4th May 2017

As I have a few minutes free, I thought I would update the clubs on progress.
At present we, that is Michael and Jamie from South Africa and myself, are in Tortola which is in the Caribbean.
The plan is to go on to Dominican Republic, great Anagua Island, Cuba, Colombia and then through the Canal again.

I then fly to Dublin for 2 weeks. Michael and Jamie leave also to go home and resume normal lives as students. I am now well on the way around again and on return to Melbourne will have finished my second circumnavigation! Sounds incredible to me.

I will leave the boat in Tahiti for the cyclone season and go to Melbourne for about 5 months to play in the new house and reacquaint myself to family and friends there. Then pick up the boat again and make my way home in 2018.

So nothing to it really!
All the best to everyone,

Hugh Pilsworth,
Blue Flyer.
