What great looking site in the making. Planning to sail Louisiades 2010. Hopefully will be able to contribute more after that.
Suggestion: Can you have a pr-prepared 'flyer' on the site that we can print and put up on yachties notice boards in the area. Telling them about the site?

Thanks

Hi SV Koshin, and welcome to FOTL.

Thanks for your comments, and your suggestion is brilliant. We'll put something together and post it soon - hopefully within the next couple of weeks.

Best regards,

Simon

Hi SV Koshin,

In the right hand menu you will now see a section called "Downloads and Photos". There are two links to a flyer in different formats.

Let us know what you think of the flyer!

Fabulous idea, fantastic site, easy to navigate etc.

We sailed to these remote and beautiful islands, as part of the 2009 Rally fleet. It was our first offshore cruise and sailing with the rally made the idea and practicalities of going just a bit more manageable.

Our trip was fabulous, invigorating, exhilarating, heartbreaking, heartwarming and life changing. To share a few brief moments in the lives of people who have so little but who face their lives with so much dignity was inspiring.

That other travellers, such as Simon and Rhea, have taken the time to create an online space where we can share our experiences is also an indication of the impact these islands and their people have on those who visit.

If you are thinking about going, stop thinking and make the plans, take the chance, cast off those lines and go. You won't regret it.

I have visited the Louisiades on 4 occasions and always include Rossel and Sudest.They are the least visited islands and certainly the most interesting and exciting.

There is a newly re discovered and marked channel (Vision Passage) through the reef, directly into the S.E. end of the main lagoon.

I always use this channel to sail directly from Townsville (via Herald Cays)straight into Tryon Bay.It saves battling against S.E. wind to get to Rossel and allows you to cruise downwind for most of your visit to Louisiades.

When leaving Rossel to travel West you can easily get to Rambuso Creek and then get to travel through SNAKE PASSAGE,into the main Louisiade archipeligo.

Until this year I recon at least 95% of yachts miss out on Rossel because of wind direction and battling up the lagoon for 25nm.
This new passage also makes Rossel a terrific stopover to Solomons,as there is no backtracking at all!!

If anyone is interested I can give detailed information



A great site and resource. We are planning to visit next year for the first time, and stumbling across all the info here has been a godsend!

Thankyou for the effort you have put in to make it possible.
