My blog is a simple record of Debbie and my travels on Zebahdy.  At present it is all in the Med but maybe we will go further afield as time allows.   It is a combination of text and photos with the occasional video.  If you care going somewhere we have been, you may find useful information on the blog

This is an account of a voyage round Britain completed over two years in the authors' Bavaria 43 sloop with an overwinter stop at Fosdyke near Boston.  There were twenty five ports of call and each leg features an account of the passage with weather conditions and the navigational planning involved.

This website is dedicated to the journeys of sailing yacht Svalen, starting with a  major voyage from Sweden to Brazil and back, departing in May 2018 and returning in summer 2019. To follow the blog, visit the posts page. To donate to any of the good causes being supported en route causes visit the fundraising page.

 

Shearwater is a 345 Moody, sailed in the mediterranean by David Innes-Wilkin and Sarah Ackroyd. Since leaving our Dartmouth berth in 2015 we have sailed though the French canals, out at Marseilles, down the Cote d'Azur, Corsica, Sardinia, Italy, Sicily Greece Ionians and Sporades.

This Blog records our adventures on water initially on charter boats and since 2013, on La Ina a very solid HR 352.

Our blog serves as a personal record of our adventures and experiences since leaving the UK in 2012 whilst allowing family and friends to keep up-to-date with our whereabouts. We hope that our blog provides some useful information for other sailors who may be planning a similar adventure to ours.

Our dream to take early retirement and cruise slowly down and into the Med unexpectedly came early... 15 year's early, due to us being made redundant (we both worked for the same company). At the time we could have 'played it safe', got new employment and continued working until retirement however we decided that life is too short and that we should take the risk and see where it takes us... please feel free to follow us on our travels by visiting The adventures of Yacht Flirtie at www.sailblogs.com/member/distantdrummer/

The plans and voyages of the Ovni 365 "Grey Wanderer" currently cruising during the summer months in the Western Baltic

This site is more than just the logs of our cruises: there are posts about a mutiny on the Guardian newspaper's Fastnet yacht entry, a race which split the paper down the middle when I worked there; about how I was held personally responsible (in a manner of speaking) for sinking the Bank of England's yacht; I go deep into the arguments that still rage among both yachtsmen and classicists about where Odysseus actually sailed. I report on building a lapstrake pram dinghy, about nerdish technical issues that I’m interested in, such as Brexit and VAT, electronic navigation and chart accuracy, and I write posts about barge cruises and about trans-Adriatic races with a friend who belongs to a Venetian yacht club. We’ve sailed to Scotland and Ireland in two extended round Britain cruises, been many times to France and Holland, spent three years recently on the Biscay coast and chartered often in the Mediterranean, the Adriatic and as far as the Seychelles as well as sailing a friend's local boat in the Californian Channel Islands. There are lots more places we plan to go. I also indulge myself here with reminiscences of sailing from the fifties onwards, as much for the grandchildrens' benefit as my own. 

Describes mainly voyages, but also explorations by bike, undertaken by us since 2003.
During the summers, we have sailed slowly from Harwich down the French Atlantic coast, along the Spanish north, past Portugal to the Algarve. We have spent seasons in the Algarve, Balearics, Sardinia and Corsica. Our catamaran, Razzmatazz, is now based in Preveza.
In the winters, we have explored Cuba, Kerala and Andalucia by bike.
The site is not a blog. I usually add a complete account of each voyage or journey once or twice a year.

A collection of summer cruises from Brighton to Trieste. Then back out of the Med to El Rompido in Atlantic SW Spain near the Portuguese border.

Aqua Blue is a Kelsall trimaran, launched in '76, and still going strong!
