1997 to 1998
In the first year after we purchased Aquarius, our sailing was totally confined to weekends and some school holidays in and around Moreton Bay in Brisbane Queensland. We learned how to sail Aquarius and how to navigate around the many shallows of Moreton Bay; however, to be honest we often spent some time during trips stuck on unforgiving mudbanks waiting for the tide to rise and float us free. Our children enjoyed the sailing and we think that those times also established a love of the sea within them as well.
