LN895B 10/05/2016 Today we made it across the channel in a heavy fog, accompanied by a pod of majestic dolphins. With the fog horn blearing out every 120 seconds and the water tight doors sealed we inched into the outer harbour of “Cherbourg” with a palpable sense of relief. Many of the crew were relieved […]

LN895B 08/05/2016 The new voyage crew arrived at 1300hrs. All were introduced to Nelly and found our bunks. Hana chose to sleep in the Crows Nest as she was the naughtiest. She was fascinated by people walking into the ‘Bra’- (dyslexic Bar!). Ollie volunteered to be man-handled up and down the stairs while Charlie was very helpful […]

TNS460 06/05/2016 Leaving Tahiti At sea at last – a full ship with most of us over jet lag and having enjoyed the variable weather and beautiful scenery of Tahiti and Moor’ea – the latter being particularly stunning both under the water and in the mountains. Yesterday we loaded stores in the sun so had […]

LN895a 05/05/2016 A magical day in the Solent, starting with dawn in Sandown Bay at the eastern end of the Isle of Wight. Although we could smell the ice cream we couldn’t get to it, but a hearty full English breakfast did the trick. And just as well, because within minutes we were heaving and […]

LN895a 04/05/2016 We’re in Sandown Bay at sunset (Wednesday evening) and have just anchored half a mile off the pier to enjoy sundowners after a slow but delightful sail round the eastern end of the Isle of Wight. Yesterday, we motored down Southampton water to anchor off St Helen’s Fort overnight. This morning, Captain Simon  […]

LN895 30/04/2016 I didn’t know what to expect coming on this trip. However, it has exceeded my expectations. The permanent crew were brilliant, friendly and willing to help and explain things if needed. The voyage crew were of different ages and abilities, but all were catered for. This is truly a trip for everyone. Being […]

LN985 28/04/2016 After a rocky night we woke up today in excitement for today’s visit to a small island called Brehat (Isle de Brehat, near Paimpol). Once the captain received the go ahead from the port (coastguard) we dropped anchor and readied the tender (Doti) boats. The day started pretty cloudy but it turned out […]

LN895 28/04/2016 After a quiet night sailing along the French coast we reached St Malo in sunshine and blue skies, much appreciated after the weather we had endured previously. Around 0930 the pilot came aboard and we handed all the sails. We were the duty watch for entering the lock, aided by the nonchalant lock workers. […]

TNS459 28/04/201 Forward Port Tahiti – Rai’tea – Tahiti Sadly this short voyage is coming to an end. After several days of heavy rain the voyage crew joined us on a beautiful Tahitian morning. We left Pape’ete accompanied by dolphins. What a great send off. We then spent a glorious afternoon sailing slowly (drifting) along […]
