Steve and Rosemary travel north from Broken Bay along the east coast of Australia on a 38 foot yacht named Rocinante, learning as they go how to live on a boat, manage weather and ocean conditions and navigate the coast. Steve has sailed before, but not for 20 years. He is not sure he is up to it, but knows that if he doesn’t go now, he may miss his chance. Rosemary is a naive amateur, open to adventure. Rosemary photographs and writes about every day to savour the journey, sharing the excitement, the learning, the frustrations and the astounding beauty of the coast and the ocean.
This is not fiction, it’s a day by day travel diary, including stunning photographs, describing actual events, weather conditions, landscapes, people, locations and food. Rosemary shares her daily life, how she learns, makes mistakes and progresses. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live on a boat and sail the Australian east coast, you’ll find it in North on Rocinante.
