Around Britain Winter 2021

Sailing Around Britain Early February 2021

An adventure at the wrong time of year. Because it is there and we can.

Choosing the weather windows. Training, voyaging whilst circumnavigating UK nations in winter. Using steady stream of low pressure systems to sail with wind abeam & abaft, waiting out the rain & gales. Thinking/planning hard - sailing easy. (Last year we got damp on one afternoon).

Departing 'Isle of Wight' to circumnavigate UK.

1500nm 4 weeks 43ft steel ketch up to 4 crew.
