Adventures on a Dash in the Ningaloo Reef

Ningaloo Reef Region This was such an interesting family adventure we decided to share it again! This story was first published Oct. 2014. Enjoy. Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia is a dream come true for snorkelers and divers. Regarded as one of the last great ocean paradises on Earth, it is Australia’s largest fringing reef and lies just metres from the shore in many places, so you can snorkel straight off the beach.  The Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area covers more than 600,000 hectares...

Well Built Boats Last

I'm talking about quality builds, not race finish positions. We owned a 1992 MK1 (kimosabi) for 3 years, selling her this past June. It was our third Corsair, having previously owned and raced/cruised a 1992 F-27 (fadin fast) and cruised a 1996 F-31 (kimosabi). We mainly raced our MK1. Our last regatta in 2014 was a great way to retire from Corsair racing. The photo of kimosabi screaming to weather with spray flying was taken at our first place finish in a chase race (reverse handicap) including... Read More »
