    Hello everyone. I recognize quite a few of you here. I hope those I recognize and those I don't are all well.

    If you are interested you can read our Blog explaining our absence for the last 5 years.

    It is a long blog .... well it has been five years!

    We were asked to write an article on our return to the UK which I have edited a bit for readers on this site. Look for the Blog entitled.


    46,000 MILES IN A MOTORHOME FOLLOWED BY 35,000 MILES CIRCUMNAVIGATING AROUND THE WORLD IN A SAILING BOAT ALL IN 7 YEARS

    Hope you enjoy it, as I look forward to catching up with everyone here and the joys of this much changed web site which has certainly taken off while we have been away!

    Welcome back, as an armchair sailor I have sailed around the world with Slocombe, Hiscock, Montissier, Robin Lee Graham and many others. I suggest a book is in there and I for one would love to proof read it. Well done. Maybe your children and wife could also contribute chapters and different viewpoint. Well done for living my dream.

    BTW, how did you get your missus to give up work, jump on board, and bu##er off with you?

    That's one nut I've yet to crack, :Sad:, and it's nowt to do with me being me, cos she still loves me....................I think. :Eek!:.........:Wink:

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    We think it's a grand adventure driving to Morocco, it's 1000 miles !

    We did learn to sail in the Greek islands and sailed in a flotilla the second week, we thought that was A Big Deal. It was the best family holiday we ever had. It was a FUN meet on water.

    Then this family trump that by about 10000 times.

    The first two steps you took are very familiar.

    Are you still sailing?
