Hi All, as we roll into the 2016 season and we are awaiting the dry to arrive here's a little bit of a report on what's been happening over the last few weeks and some dribs and drabs just to get a little bit up to date and will give you more routine updates as we settle in to the season.

That's just a brief report and all for the time being Guys and Gals. As I write this we have a bit of a low pressure trough hanging around producing a bit f rain and wind but it should clear in a few days and as we roll into the dry and the season kicks off I'll keep you more up to date on what's happening on the water up here in Darwin.
