Yaringa boat harbour is tucked out of the way in NW Westernport Bay. It’s a quiet, relaxed place surrounded by incredible bird life. Heart of Gold spent a couple of months there on the hard and in the water as we finished her fit out and began sailing again.
After 7 long years out of the water, Heart of Gold is finally floating again. On the 19th March 2019 she was relaunched at Yaringa Boat Harbour in the Northwestern corner of Westernport Bay. A huge milestone after a long stint on the hardstand, where a coat of paint and a few small jobs turned into nearly a full refit. We’ll be sailing around Westernport Bay over the next few months before venturing further afield.
A huge thanks to Dad for his patience, skill and attention to detail. There were many times when I was ready to settle with ‘that’s good enough’ and dad would convince me it would be worth doing properly. Not to mention the many months of work and research he put into motors, bilge systems, 12V electrical systems, etc, etc. I’m pretty proud of what we’ve completed and looking forward to learning how to sail again :)
