Terry and Christine  welcome you to Sandpiper's Log. Through this site, we will share with you our experiences when we travelled
throughout Australia in our Court 750 Trailer Sailer.  Sadly, we have now sold Sandpiper (March 2019) and retired from the sailing fraternity but we have left our blog online in the hope that it may assist others of a like mind.





“A Small Boat Cruising Guide to Shark Bay” provides 160 pages of valuable information to the visiting skipper, whether it be a small power boat, sail craft or combination of the two. Aimed at shallow draft vessels capable of being trailered to Shark Bay, the book contains location guides to the best anchorages and features in the Eastern Gulf, Western Gulf, Henri Freycinet Harbour and Dirk Hartog Island. A wealth of historical and geographical background is included, as well as fishing notes and tips. With tables of GPS waypoints and hand drawn mud maps of anchorages, this guide will make your next cruising holiday a breeze.

In 2014, we travelled East from our WA home town of Dowerin, towed Sandpiper across the Nullarbor Plain to explore some wonderful crusing locations in the eastern states. Our main aim was to sail the Whitsunday Islands but along the way we experienced the delights of Spencers Gulf and the mighty Murray River in South Australia, the Gippsland Lakes in Victoria, Jervis Bay in New South Wales and the Great Sandy Straits (Hervey Bay) in Queensland.

We have called this trip "Sandpiper's Half Lap". Read about it here!
