We've decided on Sunsail for our bareboat charter which is based on Hamilton Is. The flights between Seattle & Sydney looked generally brutal so my wife & I are planning on SEA to Honolulu, spend the night on Waikiki then back to the airport for a 10 hour flight the next morning which lands the following day due to the dateline. A night in Sydney followed by another flight day to Hamilton Is. We could probably hurry to get checked out and cast off the same day but decided a good night sleep and leisurely morning would start us off right. We'll retrace coming home except we'll have a couple days to explore Sydney and gain a day on the return.
