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 after cruising Australia's Great Barrier Reef extensively are now sailing in SE Asia. Total sea miles to date = 24,273 NM.
December –January was a busy time for us with a lot of work to be done on the boat after she'd sat idle while we were overseas. We were also trying to revive our anemic finances with Karen doing some
part time work in retail during the holiday period and Rob back doing some motorsport TV. As a result Our Dreamtime stayed
tied to the dock again.
With all that done, it was so good to get her out into Moreton Bay a couple of
times in February including this nice couple of days at Peel Island.
We had planned to be out on the water again for four days over last weekend but the weather was seriously not nice with heavy rain, wind and thunder storms.
Rob has a fair bit of work again in March but we intend to
get off the dock as much as possible in between. We can’t wait to throw the
ropes off again as soon as possible and enjoy the delights of the Moreton Bay
islands during the normally nice autumn weather here.
Hopefully we’ll get some good pictures to share with
