We wish our Bass Strait Cruisers fair winds as they prepare their boats and head out into Bass Strait. Also we extend our good wishes to the two boats, Reliance and Y Knot,  and their skippers Terry Frankham and Craig Walton as they join the VDL-C 2019 to circumnavigate Tasmania. We hope they all have a wonderful cruise and come back with great stories to tell.
