This year I spent 72 nights on board Jess and went sailing for sixty four of those, travelled just under 1000 nautical miles and almost two thirds of those under sail.

Things broke on the way; fridge, auto pilot, water pump and there were many running repairs, It rained, it was sunny, it was foggy, we were out in no wind and winds of 50 mph. We played guitar, ukulele and at times, very loud music. We met loads of wonderful people and even bumped into royalty. It was a fantastic season and I can't wait for next year.

This is a wee slide show of some of the brilliant places I visited along with the fantastic people who sailed with me.
