    Hi all,

    We have a 42ft Wharram cat in Darwin and looking to depart for the Kimberleys early April 2016, returning around September. We aim to be on the Qld East coast January 2017.  As always, these dates are flexible. We cruise gently and reasonably slowly when we can.

    Have never been to the Kimberleys, we would really appreciate sailing in company with others, both for the safety aspect as well as the social.

    If anyone is going this way around this time, we would love to hear from you ( [email protected] )

    John & Kat

    We are currently in Yorkeys Knob Marina waiting for another 3 sailing cats to join us mid May for a trip to the Kimberleys & back.  This will be our first trip, and fortunately Doug Cameron on one of the other boats has been there many times and will be our leader & guide.  We have very limited sailing experience. (2 years).

    Our boat is a 42ft Wharram Pahi which we built in Brisbane.

    Any advice, especially back across the Gulf in mid November would be greatly appreciated.  Our motoring capability with 2 Honda 20hp outboards is only 6kts max.

    Anyone who would like to join us would also be very welcome.  We do not cruise fast!!!

    Hi Keith & Leslie,

    This is John & Kat from Katfish.  We are currently getting her (& us) ready for the Kimberlies leaving sometime in May, and then returning to the Whitsundays by Feb 2017.  We had a fantastic time motohoming around Europe.  Let’s keep in touch with us both being in the Kimberlies around the same time?

    Happy & safe sailing,

    John & Kat
