Certainly a challenging effort for anyone let alone one so young and of slight build at that, though being smaller does make it easier to move around the confines of a yacht, not to mention climbing a mast if you have a top rigging problem.

The seas right to the last made it hard work to ease out of their grip of the boat, a stiff south westerly, uneven sea in a large swell with apparently an outgoing tide making it slow progress with some effort for a lot of tacking to get in through the Sydney harbour heads.

A great personal effort it can be said but I do wonder where the other than personal accomplishment fits into a world dominated by problems generated by excesses in governance and the leaner times that many have been facing, still do and will likely be about for a while yet.

Is it somewhat ironical that the NSW Premier/PM would choose to be available for the publicity and the lot of taxpayers generally will be to foot the bill of what would likely ammount to many thousands of $$$.
