We are not film makers but we will try to post a few video of our travels on this page. You can subscribe with YouTube or keep up-to-date with our blog.

Here is a selection of photographs taken over the years as a taster of what is to come. As we start our journey around the world we will build up a catalogue of videos and images.

Here is a contact form it looks very pretty. However my email address is not exposed to kill spam but if you want to send an attachment I will reply. Hey ho, this is a family blog so if you don't know my email then do not worry about it.

You must have a plan.

In an ideal world everything would be planned and nothing would ever go wrong, but life is just not like that so all we can do is make plans knowing that this isn't what we will actually do!



Lymington to Hamble

Image

We had a race to Lymington and back with the Royal Southern Yacht Club. This is an end of weekend photo. From the left:
Sarah & Dietrich our neighbours, Linda and me.

Isles of Scilly

Image

The Isles of Scilly are an outstanding place to go sailing, but not for the feint hearted. It is necessary to accurately work out your heights of tide and be aware of exactly how much fall there is left in the tide less you run aground on rocks when the tide goes out.

Yarmouth to Dartmouth

Image

The Royal Southern Cruiser race to the West Country got off to a miserable start with F8 winds and rough seas off Cowes. The Fleet became stuck in Yarmouth for two night waiting for the storm to abate before heading off to Dartmouth

The headboard and two seats are at the end of life and need re-covering. We are going to have them covered with Blue Alcantara to match the rest of the boat.

Image

This kitchen extractor fan is as Chris Evans would say "ik". Trying to find one the same size might be a challange

Image

There are over 50 halogen down-lights on the boat and the time has come to upgrade to LED. It just as well this happens to be something I know about.

Image

the ground plate on the SSB has dissolved. The original one was glass fibred in, so getting a new one through is going to be a challenge. The good news is that a new SSB is going to be launched in the next 12 months by Icom to replace the 20 year old technology in my boat.
