SD-Auz done & dusted: Checkmate!

Lightning strikes twice..i take that back, multiple times… Back to my adopted homeland of Australia once again aboard the Peterson 50 “Checkmate” with epic near 200 mile per day averages for 6,500-nautical miles.

Along with two quick pitstops in Hawaii and Tonga equals one fantastic sleighride south while exiting the northern hemisphere winter and entering the start of the southern hemisphere cyclone season …

…Ironic it was a big goal to never get beaten in chess the whole route due to the name of the boat.. and with ten wins and three stalemates vs Thomas and Alma I succeeded !!
