Kimberley Adventure in an RL28
Just come back from a 2500km trip sailing the Kimberley Coast from Derby in WA to Darwin. Videos of the trip are being edited with the first 2 complete for anyone interested in the area or doing a similar trip. Videos on my Sailing Youtube Channel
Amazing trip with big tides and crocodiles but stunning locations. My Rl28 took it all in her stride without a hitch. Cheers Mark

Re: Kimberley Adventure in an RL28
I very much enjoy these videos, I’m in awe of the confidence and courage required to undertake such a trip. I have also been watching a similar series of UTubes called Free Range Sailing which I can also highly recommend.
I was disgusted by the monopolisation of geological features like the ‘Horizontal Waterfalls’ by commercial operators. I have seen other examples of this elsewhere.
I look forward to the next instalment.

That is a challenge for anyone.
Have sailed down the other way Darwin to Mandurah on a much bigger boat.
Derby - the spring tides would be up there as the highest/lowest in Australia.
That is a brave achievement.

Re: Kimberley Adventure in an RL28
Thanks for the comments guys. Its a daunting trip but perfectly doable by anyone with a bit of preparation and a good deal of common sense. If you have ever dreamed of a Kimberley trip I encourage people to get out there soon. Cheers Mark
