The boat is back in action!!! This Saturday we are going to try to sail from Brisbane to Lord Howe Island! It will take three days with no stops to get there and we are going to be away for 3 weeks.. This trip I’m going try to raise money for the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre (CTRC).
Did you know that the Great Barrier Reef is home to 6 of the 7 species of marine turtles. Fifty million turtles around the world die each year. Ghost nets and plastic are the main problem with over 100,000 dying from these each year. The CTRC rescues injured turtles from the ocean and nurses them back to health. It is a voluntary, non-profit organisation and I visited their centre on Fitzroy Island when we were on our big sailing trip last year. I’m going to try to raise $1000 on this sailing trip to Lord Howe Island and would love for anyone who is interested in my blog to donate to my GoFundMe campaign. I’m going to keep you posted about our adventures over the next 3 weeks.
This is the link to the GoFundMe page, click on the Sailing to Save the Turtles sentence.
Do it for the turtles!!!!
Talk to you soon when we get to Brisbane and we’re on our way
