This is our boat blog in which I chronicle our cruises in Europe and various other boating topics. There is a considerable amount of information about sailing along the remote west coast of Ireland, which has been published in a book called Cruising the Wild Atlantic Way. There is also a good deal of information about cruising in Scotland, specifically in the Inner Hebrides, and in Galicia, Spain. I am the editor of the CA Almanac for the west of Ireland. 

A previous blog covered the United States, Canada and the Atlantic Circuit, including crossing the Atlantic from Canada to Ireland, Spain to the Caribbean, and Caribbean to Ireland via the Azores. Articles about our stops along the way can be found on our website, That website also contains many articles based on our best-selling book, Happy Hooking. The Art of Anchoring.  

Blog by Richard Bessey and Justine Selman on their 2017/18 Atlantic cruise, covering Spain, Portugal, Madeira, Canaries, Cape Verde, Caribbean (Leeward and Windward), and Azores.

Welcome to We joined forces to realise our dream of sailing around the world. Through our sailing blog we share our sailing around the world experience in order to inspire others to live their own dreams. We sailed away from London in May 2018 and we currently (June 2020) are in NZ. Once the Pacific borders open (closed due to Covid) we will resume our circumnavigation. Meanwhile we fulfill our mission of 'inspiring, informing and inspiriting' via various insightful cruising conversations, like ‘Is sailing scary?’ shared via our YouTube channel, and not only. We hope you join us in our sailing adventure and get inspired!

Homepage of Awelina of Sweden. Some hopefully useful files, mostly about astro-nav and quantitative articles on fuel consumption and forces on anchors.

Sailing "Mr Blue Sky" a Hanse 385 from The Isle of Rugen in the Baltic, back to Brixham, Devon, during May & June 2016.  The passage included visits to Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Belgium & France before crossing the channel back to England. 

Gentle cruising around the Baltic overwintering Aalborg under  the friendly eye of our HLR there Niels Mathiesen .

Follow the adventures of Kate and Graham and their OVNI 395.

We are Paul and Val Lingard, a retired couple who kept their Moody S38 in Scotland for 3 years before moving aboard for 5 months each summer from 2016 and heading very slowly towards the Mediterranean. It has taken us 3 years to reach North West Spain. The blog records our journeys and there is also a section on our fit-out. We expect it to take us at least 6 years before we reach Gibraltar as we like to get to know a place before moving on!

Follow Richard and Alison as they take a year off work to sail across the Atlantic and back again in their SeaStream 43 blue water cruiser, Cerulean of Penryn.

We purchased Cerulean in 2016 from it's original owner TV presenter Peter Snow and spent the next two years refitting in preparation for joining the ARC Atlantic rally in 2018. Throughout our odyssey we post regular blogs on our website under 'Latest News' where you can share our experiences.

Our journey has taken us across the Atlantic to St Lucia, down to Tobago Cays, spending a wonderful Christmas in Bequia. We sailed northwards through the Windward and Leeward Islands, up to the US and British Virgin Islands. Many people then head back across to Bermuda but we carried on to Turks & Caicos and into the Bahamas before reaching our goal of entering the ICW at Florida.

After quick detour to visit the Everglades and Kennedy Space Station (by car) we headed out double handed for the long and cold northern crossing to Bermuda and the Azores
