How about the North Atlantic Islands from Canaries to Azores north to Ireland for the summer over the top of Scotland and down the North Sea. That should put you in France for the late Autumn and near safe harbours as the nights draw in for a dash down to warmer climates of the Algarve for the winter.

That is easy to solve, I will meet you in Falmouth in a week, quick beer with Atoll and a shopping trip to Lidl for a packet of butter. Then head south until it melts. Wifey can have the house.

How is the search for the Cat coming along?
