Leaving Port Galice - Easter 2006

St Lucia Jan 2007

Pippa and Justine March 2007



Grew up in the UK before moving to Australia in the early 90's where he works as a real estate consultant for CB Richard Ellis. Sails semi competitively in Sydney with friends and joined his sister, Sue and brother-in-law, Mike to sail from Darwin to Kupang in West Timor last year on their Peterson 46'.




With a family that has been passionate about sailing it was no surprise that Jos was the initial instigator of "this madness" (Mike didn't dare suggest the Odyssey!) as being the logical and most fun way of bringing Mary Constance "home" to Sydney.



When we left Pippa was 6 (and 3/4!!) years old and loved everything to do with ballet.......

She is now at home on the "high seas" but still loves ballet and is almost 8


The youngest crew on board at 5 years old when we left France (and enthusiasm abounds!!)

Justine is now  6 and still making her presence felt!
