Thanks Everyone!

About three years ago, I had a dream to sail around the world,on Sunday I leave to do just that!

I would like to thank all on here for all the help and advice recieved to my many questions.

I hope that many of the other dreamers on here have as much luck as I did in making the dream become reality.


All the best

Steven.

Re: THANKS EVERYONE!!

Judging by the weather this week, it will be isle o man, then cork, then wait for a window for biscay, but if we do end up in falmouth, I'll certainly give you a bell, cheers atoll

Wishing you fair winds and no foul tides. Will you still be checking in from time to time? On SSB with a pactor you could post a sentence an hour

Well done for getting everything ready and squared away!

Re: Thanks Everyone!

Great to hear you're realising your dream Stevensuf. Have a wonderful voyage and may the dolphins keep you company.

I echo Atoll's sentiments. Falmouth is an awesome cruising ground and definitely worth a visit.

Re: Thanks Everyone!

Godspeed!

Do you have a website where you'll be blogging and posting pictures? I'd love to bookmark it and follow your voyage....as will many others I bet. Keep a detailed log, take lots of pictures....and you'll have a good book on your hands....
