Sailing already

SailingWhat a difference having a very much smaller, more manageable, boat has made to my life already.

The picture shows us cruising along at just over seven knots in what I thought was quite a strong wind, just past Lymington.

It has to be said that this trip was undertaken under the steady guidance of skipper John, who you all know of through Lady Jane's previous journeys.

I have so much to learn, but the fun part is Arctic Rose is so much more practical to go places in than Lady Jane ever was.

The deal was done on Friday.

The dream lives on.

I know it's been a while since posting, but finding the perfect vessel to continue the dream has taken some time.

With luck, the search is nearly over...
