|Whilst in Melbourne at the beginning of June, I took a trip on a sailing ship. A one-hour trip. It was the only sailing that ventured out that day, as the weather brewed up nasty. Three fishermen lost their life when their dinghy overturned. We sailed off Portarlington, on the southern reaches of Port Phillip Bay, as part of the Portarlington Celtic Festival.|
|The "Enterprize" is the replica of John Pascoe Fawkner's Schooner Enterprize - the ship that sailed from Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) in 1835 with the first permanent white settlers that started what has become the City of Melbourne. |
This is the first of seven posts about our trip on the tall-ship. The seventh post will be my July Theme Day offering for "Upside Down".
