The Rock-itt : November 2011
some luck it would finally blow itself out. A bird landed on deck battered and broken by the storm and though they tried to feed it with a biscuit it soon died from its injuries. Another harrowing thought in Errol’s mind was that if they were to be blown too far off course and were to miss the south-western promontory of the Papuan Gulf, they would end up in the Arafura Sea to which they had no charts and would surely be lost. They huddled in despair, if Sirocco did open up and fill with water it would be certain that their bodies would never be found. Had they gone through so much and come so far to have it end here at the will of an angry sea where there was no negotiating? Had Cook and his crew been in a similar situation? It was frightening. But then as if their silent prayers had been answered ever so faintly off the starboard side, land was sighted. Could it be New Guinea, could they have beaten the overwhelming odds which had almost broken their spirit and will to survive? Find out in our next issue of “Hobart to Hollywood”.
