Sad to say “Auf wiedersehen” to Helmke for a while

It’s not for ever, but it feels like it.

Helmke and her boyfriend Bronte are on their perennial sabbatical, where they head off to their yacht and spend time sailing the globe. At the moment they are in Whangerai, New Zealand, re-equipping their boat and buying supplies (70 litres of rum!)

We all wish them bon voyage and hope that they both have fun and are safe out there in the South Pacific.

Just think, I could be arguing with a 1st AD right now...
