The blog of yet another couple who've sold everything, quit full time jobs and gone sailing. Mostly as a reminder for ourselves (sailors have short memories you see) we're writing a Captain's Log about what we got up to during the day; the highs, lows and in-betweens.

In 2018 we sailed Bon Bini (our Dufour 36 Classic) from Barcelona through the Balearics, Sardinia, Corsica, northern Italy, the Tuscan Islands and the Aeolian Islands before wintering in Marina di Ragusa in Sicily. This season (2019) we're sailing in Greece, planning on wintering in Marmaris.

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

A site containing much information on the technical side of yachting, with hundreds of photographs illustrating designs and arrangements, both common and unusual.

This is the cruising blog of David & Lindsay Inwood, full time live-aboards (ie sold up to go sailing), initially in our Najad 391 "Red Panda" and then in our Contest 48CS "Goldcrest".  It covers our voyages from 2009 onwards, starting as real rookies sailing into the Med, a couple of years getting to Turkey & back to the UK, changing boats for ocean passages & crossing the Atlantic to the caribbean.  There our plans changed and we spent a year or so doing most of the US east coast, a tiny bit of Cuba &Mexico before heading back to Europe.  We had an eventful east-bound Atlantic crossing and are now back in the Med.

This blog is our photographic and written record of our dream adventure to explore the world on our sailing yacht, Blue Velvet of Sark. We both left work early and set off from the UK in 2013,  not really sure if our gamble would work. Would we be able to afford to live this dream lifestyle? Would reality live up to the dream expectations? Would we be constantly plagued by boat breakages ... the cruising is "yacht maintenance in exotic places" analogy? We don't know the answer to all of those questions yet but the blog tracks our progress and the fun we are having along the way finding out.

My site is primarily about how to  obtain, understand and use  marine weather forecasts. I hope that it will help sailors to get a better understanding about weather on all scales of time and space..
