vagabond heart: sailing adventures of the hawkins family

Welcome to Hawkins Family Sailing Adventures

In January 2005, the Hawkins family set off from Pittwater in Sydney for the family trip of a lifetime...

... and now we're back! We crossed our outward path at Breaksea Spit on the north of Fraser island at 1430 AEST, 25th Oct. That's 3 1/2 years after leaving Darwin (we spent the first 18 months cruising the East and North coasts of Australia), 39 countries and 32000 miles later! Trip of a lifetime? Unbelievable experience, far beyond our wildest dreams.

This web site chronicles the details of our voyage, completed as we went along. It contains all the family's logs we've all written of different voyages as well as photo albums with commentary that we'd love you to browse through.

If you have any questions or if you would just like to get in touch with us please let us know by filling in our contact form.

Thanks for visiting and we hope you enjoy finding out a little about the people and places of the Hawkins' Family sailing adventures!
