Halventures is a brief narrative of sailing adventures on board Hal, our 35 foot Hallberg Rassy yacht. We purchased her in 2014 with the aim to sail to the Arctic and continue cruising with family and friends to this day. 

 

Helga is Linssen Grand Sturdy 380 AC. Homeport is at Parainen. She spends most of the summer in Western Finland and Åland. Helga’s winter home is at Hanko Board Yard in Hanko.

The website  provides an insight to life on the island and other useful information to help you enjoy your visit. This covers such things as the local port information and restaurants etc. Weather, tides, activities etc.  This is a non-commercial site for visitors to Ile de Re to enjoy and find out more about the island when visiting or living here.

Kalessin of Orwell is a 33ft Westerly Storm sailed by Sam and Camilla and their two sons, Guy and Ben. In 2006-8 we sailed her down to Portugal, into the Med, and home through the French canals. In 2011 we explored Baltic Germany and Denmark. Despite Sam's stroke we haven't given up on sailing: we cruised gently in Denmark and Germany in summer 2013, and Kalessin is now cruising in home waters on the UK East Coast, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

This site is a guide to sailing in the Baltic. It covers the travels of Kissen, a Hallberg-Rassy 36, which has spent the last 5 years or so slowly crawling round the flesh-pots, sorry, beautiful locations of the Baltic Sea. Kissen has now been based in the Baltic for 8 years. We only went for a couple! It was only last year (2010) that we can finally say that we have managed to visit every country in the Baltic at least once.

Jan and Mark Cullen's blog about sailing in the Adriatic on their Hanse 415 Lyra. Focus on destinations, food and history. 

We are Ian and Sarah. We are a fifty something couple from North Yorkshire. For the last few months we have been planning an adventure.

Secretly, we’ve been plotting our gap years for ages, inspired by what our daughters have done and thinking of all the places we still want to go and the things we still want to do.

In reality, it all started many moons ago when Ian and his good friend Jonathan were chatting over drinks. Probably more like thirty years ago ( I can’t believe that we actually have a thirty years ago, but there you are!)

Two young hotel managers, both from the north of England, who met whilst working at The Chester Grosvenor Hotel, were plotting over a glass of Champagne. The chat developed into a discussion about the places they wanted to go and adventures they were determined to have. So between them they decided that eventually they wanted to sail a yacht into a spectacular tropical bay, crystal clear sea, white pepper beach, you get the idea, whilst standing on the bow playing a saxophone! At that point neither of them had ever sailed a boat or learnt to play the saxophone!

As a testament to the power of dreams, even without the accompanying lists, plans or spreadsheets, the two friends set about developing their careers and almost incidentally achieving, at least in part, some of the dream.
