We are JnS Sailing Options and we hope you enjoy watching our journeys through this world. There have been many and there will be more. In the latest adventure we sail our small yacht The Long Way Down from Yorkshire to the Mediterranean sea, through the inland waterways of France. When we reach the Med, we'll "turn left" and see where Options takes us.

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.

This is Nick & Alison on board our Southerly S110 as we spend 2 years sailing around the coast of Scotland.

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
