Namadgi’s 2012 Winter Cruise took started in May 2012 with a passage to New Caledonia, where the yacht cruised in the lagoon and to the Loyalty Islands, and was unfortunately damaged in an accidental grounding.
Following repairs in Noumea, the trip continued to Port Vila. Namadgi cruised the islands of Vanuatu for several weeks before a westerly passage across the Coral Sea to Mackay, after which she was based in the Whitsunday Islands for more cruising.
Finally Namadgi sailed down the east coast of Queensland and New South Wales to return home in December. Here are some photos of the trip, taken by members.
