Greetings to all from the Aft Port watch.  Our first watch at sea was quite busy, with a good lookout required on account of the numerous fishing vessels in the waters of the Gulf of Nicoya.  At the end of the watch, some of us went to have a look at the phosphorescence which others […]

San Sebastian, Gomera The day greeted us with sun on deck and a buffet breakfast. This was in welcomed contrast to other days when we would have preferred the shelter of the mess below. Assisted climbing was organised for several crew members who either relied upon wheelchairs for mobility or facing other challenges, including sight […]

We’re off! After three days in steamy Puntarenas we’re heading out into the Pacific.  After a few days of maintenance the voyage crew joined on 29th February. We have people from all over – Canadians, Americans, Australians, a New Zealander and Uruguayan and of course the UK.  A good multi-national mix of abilities and ages […]

The ship woke today in time to catch the sun rising across the marina of the La Palma.  As the sun began its ascent and cleared the few remaining clouds it promised a ‘scorchio’ day ahead.  As usual everyone mustered to the call of a full English breakfast, but more importantly for all was the […]

LN893 02/03/2016 16:30 day 3 Second day out of port, the island of La Palma has just come to view. This morning was a lot brighter than yesterday as a result a few familiar and almost forgotten faces began to reappear on deck after the seasickness that overtook so much of the crew yesterday. Our […]

The Little Britain Challenge Cup has grown into the second largest sailing regatta in Britain, second only to Cowes Week and the largest construction industry regatta in Europe. The regatta started in 1988 and now attracts over 3,000 people and more than 250 boats for four days of racing, networking and socialising. The Jubilee Sailing Trust is one of the charities who have benefited from the efforts of the Little Britain Challenge Cup, receiving more than £500,000 since 1988.

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.

Take part in this fantastic event and raise money for the Jubilee Sailing Trust. Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved.

TNS456 18/02/2016 We picked up an early pilot and prepared ourselves to moor up in Puntareanas. We were not under sail as the wind remained unpredictable as it had been through the trip. Mooring lines were laid out and fenders at the ready once we were safely moored up the gangway was ready so we could spend some time […]
