Bon voyage!

Hello, thanks for stopping by this new blog all about sailing our 30 foot boat from Torquay and making tea, lunch, dinner – just about anything – in our very teeny kitchen abroad.

I’m Claire, I just started sailing. A year ago I’d never pulled a rope, put out the fenders, or made an entry into a log book. That changed when I meet Ollie. He’s very into sailing boats. So much so, that for our honeymoon we somehow ended up going on a week’s sailing course, with me getting Competent Crew and he Day Skipper.

This came in pretty handy, as a month after getting married we bought our (my first, his second) sailing boat. It’s a Hunter Legend 306 and she’s called Lady Jo. The lovely chap who sold her to us said that he named her after his wife.

From then I haven’t looked back. I love sailing. The feeling of the waves, the wind and this beautifully crafted vessel using nature to gracefully glide along. It’s the most elegant, relaxing and adventurous way to travel.
