A rare find


I was searching on YouTube for a copy of Liz Thompson's video "Breaking Bows and Arrows" - click here - when I came across this equally fascinating 45-minute clip of an 84-day voyage in an open dinghy from Sydney to Port Moresby via Thursday Island in 1978.

What makes this video so special for me is that it shows both Thursday Island and Port Moresby's Royal Papuan Yacht Club just the way they were when I used to live and work there in the 'seventies.

This is for you, Hubert in Cooktown, and all those who shared my time in Port Moresby in the days when we were still young and full of hope.
