Sharks in Airlie & A Whitsunday Sailing Trip

Spent the last few days sailing the Whitsunday Islands on the British Defender, coolest trip ever! (For those of you Facebookers on the trip, click to see my original blog post, click on the slideshow below, and download all our party pics!) Whitsundays...crazy sailing, hot goon (cheap Aussie wine in a box), vegemite penalties, and horserace card games :)

Airlie Beach itself is a backpacker party town that sleeps few hours a night. Vic Hislop's Shark Museum was definitely a highlight...great info on the Great White & Tiger sharks, horrific stories, bureaucratic shark attack coverups, and a frozen specimen of the Great White, caught by the shark hunter himself. Let's just hope the diving waters in Cairns are shark free in the next few days!
