The Years EVE

After Christmas and the bad weather we stopped our boat trip and came back to Airlie Beach. Bronwynn and I were able to stay at a friend's house 40 km from Airlie Beach. On Tuesday we left his house to collect stuff we forgot at Carlos boat.
The waves were amazing high and it wasn't so easy to get on the boats.
We left Airlie Beach and our friend drove us to Mackay, where we met up people we knew from Airlie. We spent the night there, drinking and partying. It was fun.
Carlos texted us the next day, the weather will be fine, if we want to go sailing again.
So i rented a car for 4 days in Mackay, we drove to Airlie Beach, got on the boat and on Thursday morning we set sails again and went off to Stonehaven. It was a very nice trip. We had good strong wind.
New Years Eve we sailed to another place. There we met up other sailors as well. After swimming, surfing and relaxing we went to the beach. A nice fire, good food and drinks waited there.
Exactly 5 to 12 it started lashing rain. So we waited the last minutes and everybody was quite happy to go back to the boats.
Good for us, that Greg was already on his boat. He crashed on the beach with highspeed with his little boat. Luckily nothing happend, neither people nor the boat was hurt/broken.
New Year was complicated. We had strong wind, so Carlos wanted to stay on more day. Problem was, if we stay one more day we wouldn't have left before noon the next day.
I needed to go back because of the car.
We arrived in Airlie about 4 pm, Bronwynn stayed there. At 6 pm i was on my way back to Mackay.... and the rest is in the other post.......
