Achieving a dream… Sailing into Sydney Harbour

In December 2011, Sarah and Will Curry purchased their first boat in Mexico: a Beneteau First 405 ‘Hydroquest’. They covered 12,000 nautical in two years: within Mexico, the ‘Pacific Puddle Jump’, and through many idyllic South Pacific island groups. In November 2013 they sailed into Sydney Harbour, Australia, which had been a dream for many years.
