Log of Helen and Andy's voyages on Speedwell of Rhu, an Oyster 435, together with information about Speedwell and a collection of articles on various sailing topics.

Our blog has been running since we set sail from the Menai Straits in July 2009, telling the story of preparing Rampage as a liveaboard boat, our travels to Barcelona for our first winter and subsequent wanderings in the Med. 

This is an account of our sailing trip to the Med from the UK. We are on Leg 7 - already exceeding the original 5 year there-and-back plan. 2009 was Plymouth, UK to Portugal via France, Biscay and the Spanish Rias. 2010 it was to Sardinia via Gibraltar, Spain and the Balearics. Next came Sardinia to Corfu via Corsica, Italy, Sicily and Malta. For 2 years we've explored some of Greece, the Ionian, Peloponnese and the Sporades and last year was Turkey. We're back in Greece now to explore the as yet unvisited areas, from Rhodes to Northeast Aegean. The journal is not specifically a sailing "log" as it was originally intended for family & friends to keep tabs on us.

Follow our journey on board Red Roo through this blog and web site as we live aboard and sail full time from Europe back home to Australia in our Alliage 38 yacht.  On average we post once a fortnight and in the first three years of our adventure have already sailed and explored 16 countries in Europe. Yes we are taking the long way - there is a whole world out there to sail and explore.

2016 - France, Channel Islands, United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Scotland

2017 - The Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark

2018 - France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco

 

Robinetta is a "Tabloid Cruiser" gaff cutter designed by Denys Rayner and launched in 1937. This is the log of her voyages and documents her history

A day by day account of Lady Hamilton’s circumnavigation of the Baltic.

Several solo circumnavigations by Jeanne Socrates on 'Nereida' - four times solo through Southern Ocean, three times solo around Cape Horn

First was west-about through Tropics from west coast of Mexico back to Mexico (through Panama Canal), others were east-about through Southern Ocean.

Last ones were solo, nonstop, unassisted -  2012-13: Guinness World Record for 'oldest female RTW nonstop unassisted' (and first woman to circumnavigate solo, nonstop, unassisted from N. America).  Last one: 2018-19  - on completion, 7th Sept, became oldest person to do so. 

Daily blogs are posted to website when underway.

Spent time in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Mexico recuperating from a bad fall on 28 Sept 2017, but returned to Victoria, B.C., Canada in May 2018 to prepare for last nonstop unassisted solo RTW from/to Victoria Hbr.

Plan is to repair 'Nereida' over summer 2020 in B.C., so as to get away cruising once more - to California, Mexico, Polynesia.... and on through Pacific....
