Welcome home to Ken, Audrey and Fast Forward!!!

Thanks to Roy McBride, always on hand to capture events 
in the marina with his trusty Canon G11.

Ten years away, and a circumnavigation! What a story! Anyway they are back now, right here in the marina, tied up quite close to where they used to be in 2003. They tied up yesterday morning about 10:30 I believe.

No doubt there will be plenty of news as they get time to give interviews etc, and I hope someone persuades them to do a slideshow for us!

By the way, this is one hell of a boat - its a Phil Southwell design - about 62', made in Aluminium, supremenly well equipped. Its for sale too, about 750k AUD I think, that's about R6,7 bar so, see it here.
