In time gone by, Australia, South America, Africa, India and the Antarctic were joined in one vast land mass called Gondwana. Fortunately for present-day yachtsmen the break-up all those millions of years ago created sailing waters of incomparable diversity; islands with fascinating cultures; fjords to rival Norway; and one mighty coral reef stretching half the length of a continent, aptly named the Great Barrier. Throw Australia’s great city, Sydney, and its huge natural harbour into the mix; include its New Zealand rival, Auckland, the aptly named City of Sails, surrounded by its Bay of Islands; add a dash of French-influenced spice islands, and a pinch of the Far East and you have more than enough variety to ocean contain thousands of stunning tropical islands and tempt the most jaded of cruising palates.
