Rob and Karen Oberg spent a year and 7,200 nautical miles crewing on other people's boats in SE Asia and Europe before cruising the Med for 2 seasons with crewmate, Marc Beerts, on a Jeanneau 43 DS, Alcheringa (Alcheringa is an Australian Aboriginal word meaning 'The Dreamtime'). On returning to Australia they acquired a Whitby 42 ketch, renamed her 'Our Dreamtime' and now cruise Australia's Great Barrier Reef and soon the Western Pacific and SE Asia. Total sea miles to date = 18,059 NM.
'Our Dreamtime' featured in State's most popular newspaper.

The January 14 edition of the Sunday Mail newspaper here in Queensland featured a three page article about three different couples living aboard boats. We were lucky enough to be one of those featured talking about how we became cruisers and our life on Our Dreamtime. As the Sunday Mail is read by around 700,000 people each week, it was a nice piece of positive media promoting the live aboard lifestyle. The feature article was written by the Sunday Mail's Kay Dibben, a Women Who Sail Australia member. Jamie Hanson shot the cool photos. Thanks team. You did a great job.
