30/07/15 LN874 Day 4 We are currently in a centre of low pressure with pretty much no wind. Last night was nice and quiet, with beautiful stars and a full moon; however there was not much wind. In fact, at one point around 11pm, we were becalmed and started to drift backwards! Not ideal when […]

30/07/15 TNS 445 Last night we played cards at the bar and then watched the fireworks at Swanage Bay just after sunset. This morning after breakfast we completed assisted climbs before setting many sails and raising the anchor.

The Windsor Cup Regatta is the annual medical regatta open to any boat with a valid IRC Certificate and any other non-rated cruising boat which has one or more members of the medical and or allied profession, pharmaceutical or medical related company on board. Although a relaxed event we are extremely lucky to be supported by the Royal London Yacht Club who organise all of the racing and also provide supper on the Friday night and the Royal Yacht Squadron whom we have secured our prize giving dinner with once again for the Saturday night.

29/07/15 TNS445 Has been a breezy sail to say the least! Gale force winds in the channel so we stayed in home waters seeking shelter from the Isle of Wight. Have had a good sail south today around the island & now motoring towards Swanage Bay to anchor overnight. Heavy seas but a happy crew. We’ll just pretend […]

29/07/15 LN875 Events following the crossing of start line: The hours after the ships crossed the starting line, and the race began, it became clear that there are many roads to Rome, and just as many opinions on which one is the fastest. Some ships turned southwest for the next checkpoint straight away after the […]

28/07/15 LN875 Most people arrived during Monday afternoon- although a few had serious troubles with their flights & their luggage. We spent the afternoon on safety briefings, harness fittings, & “evacuation” drill.

LN874 28/07/15 Yet again just as in port after an excellent voyage, JST has demonstrated the meaninglessness of disability as a barrier in society. This week Norway was destination of choice. The highlight of the trip was sailing through the fjords, which benefited both our eyes and thoughts. As was recently pointed out to me, the tendency to […]

24/07/15 LN873 We started off bright and early to help with the assisted climbs and wheelchairs aloft where Alice and Mislav did a self ascent, something very new to them and extremely rewarding. Most of the assisted climbers were first-timers – nervous about going up but feeling very pleased when they got down.  All ran […]
