About Me:

Able to accept whatever life presents and laugh at myself. I stay happy and keep a positive outlook. Healthy eating is high on the agenda. My Discovery 55 is currently based in Montenegro. 2019 plans are cruising the Adriatic and Ionian from May to August. September is a 3,000 nm trip from Montenegro to the UK. This is via the Ionian, Sicily, Aeolian Islands (Stromboli, Volcano etc), Sardinia, Corsica and the Ligurian Sea to explore this whale and dolphin hotspot. Onwards to the Balearics to Gibralter, Portugal and Spain and to finish off a crossing of Biscay to the UK. Make dreams a reality - they are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions

Sailing Experience:

Started sailing by racing a Hobie 18 in Dubai. Solent and cross channel racing. Cruised the Caribbean, Whitsundays, Seychelles, Thailand, Greece, Turkey, Balearics, Croatia and Montenegro. 2016 - 2018 spent cruising the Adriatic, Ionian and Aegean including working with the Montenegro Dolphin Research Project and Marine Mammals Research Association with a Whale and Dolphin expedition from Montenegro to Turkey. Very well equipped boat with a happy, capable and able sailor.

It's been a very wet May but getting on with lots of boat jobs during that time. June promises to be the way it is supposed to be every year. Hope so - will be making my first trip from here to the Ionian in 10 days time !
