Here we go again after a long pause

You have to dream big so here we go.

Tomorrow my crew comes together in Cowes and we will set off to position for an Atlantic crossing in January 2017. I have no idea how all of this will work out. Sarah my wife is not up for crossing oceans and will join where possible. I am hopeful that as skipper I can pick suitable crew and create a good environment so that we all get what we need from the experience.

I will need crew with some offshore experience in Jan 2017 in the Canaries to help with the Atlantic puddle jump. Feel free to volunteer if you are that way inclined. I am planning to add a tracking facility to the site so that you can track progress if your desire is to view from afar. The ultimate aim if all goes well is to be in New Zealand by Oct/Nov 2017.






Wish us luck..IMG_1493


  1. Ahoy there … Well, I have a DayBoat Certificate and TWO (yes, TWO!) RYA Level 2 Certificates. And if a liveaboard in the Maldives counts for off-shore sailing, I would appear to be the ideal candidate … I’m in!
    Good luck! Lynda xx

  2. Bon voyage – wish I could find the time to join you. Good sailing. Stj
