SAILING IN TASMANIA
Needing to be slipped and seeking a favourable cruising area in Australia, the Eye of the Wind sailed to Tasmania in January 1983 and became the first square rigged ship to be seen in Hobart since 1939. She conducted cruises from Hobart for six weeks around the Derwent and Southern Tasmania before returning to Sydney. She then departed for an extended Pacific Islands voyage, calling at New Zealand, Tahiti, Tonga, Fiji, then a three week cruise around the Fijian Islands before continuing through Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and the East Coast of Australia.
Arriving back in Sydney just prior to Christmas 1983 most of the crew spent the festive season ashore with friends and families before departing again for Hobart for the ship's slipping and survey. She then continued conducting short cruises around the Derwent Estuary and Southern Tasmania during the Australian summer. EYE OF THE WIND is available for worldwide charter.
