The reason for doing what we do. Nothing better than visiting wonderful new places and enjoying fun new experiences all by sailboat.
It's not all cocktails and sunshine, sometimes you have to get your hands dirty. We try to do as much DIY boat work as we can.
Buying a boat can be a scary process if you have never done it before. We'll share our experiences and lessons learned with you.
Osbourne Bay, IOW
Our first trip to Osbourne Bay
An excellent day of firsts; first time we’ve anchored in Osborne Bay on the Isle-of-Wight, first time we’ve had to reef Anika’s main sail, first time out with all three vertical battens in the main.

Our First West Country Odyssey
From the river Hamble to Fowey, Cornwall and back
This was our first opportunity to take Anika on a longer cruise. With all the Brexit stuff going on we decided to head west along the English south coast and just see how far we get before having to turn back east towards home.
