Mediterranean Express, Ken Munn

Offered a berth in the South of France for no more than the cost of his Gosport marina fees, Ken Munn decided to move Snowbird to the sun without delay. He planned his voyage for a maximum of three day legs with stopovers to refuel and replenish. With three crew change ports-of-call, and other pitstops, the trip of 2100nm was made in five weeks, with 21 nights at sea. Ken will describe the planning, the boat preparation and the pitfalls. And how he arrived on the Côte d’Azur in June wearing full oilskins and dodging garden furniture.
