Sandpiper's Half Lap

Our half lap consists of a road journey from the WA wheat belt town of Dowerin to the Whitsundays in Queensland and return, with many planned and unplanned stops along the way. The inspiration for our trip comes from the journeys of others in their trailer sailers, including the the wonderful Bosun's Big Lap of 2007. We have allocated ourselves 9 or 10 months for the trip, with at least two trips back to WA along the way to satisfy our need to see family and our four gorgeous grand children. Our plans are fluid, but our dreams include such places as the Eyre Peninsula, the Murray River, the Gippsland Lakes, the Myall Lakes and the Whitsunday Islands. Of course, it is not all sailing. Our trailer sailer is also a caravan so there is an abundance of exploring to do in this wonderful land of ours.
