Default Borneo to OZ - share some experiences?

Spent the last week getting our heads around the fact that we've purchased a yacht overseas - especially when we also still have another here in Oz. Don't mind being a two car family but this is the second time we've become a two boat one We'll keep you posted on finding a good home for our beautiful vessel mico

Had all the atlases spread out across the lounge floor last night looking at the possible routes from the top of Borneo down to Darwin and then across to Cairns - or Borneo across the top of PNG, New Britain, Woodlark Is, Louisiades and down into Cairns.

We're more familiar with the Rabal, Woodlark, Louisiades, Cairns route - and we have done the Darwin to Cairns one as well. The rest of the legs are new territory to us. Any thoughts, ideas or experiences people have in cruising any of these waters we'd love to hear from you. We've got World Cruising Routes but personal insights are priceless.

As the corn farmer said 'we're all ears"

Excellent Smithers!!!!!!!

Much appreciated Grunt. We had never considered coming into Gove and makes a heap of sense! We've done the trip out of Darwin and its a pain in the behind getting out of Veron Gulf and then traveling across the top where there are no charts for anything below the 10m mark - it makes for a scary passage when the only charts available are direct from Phillip Parker King circa 1802. We're now feeling a lot more confident so thanks heaps for the reference.!

You just gotta love this sailing community of ours :
