Isles Glenan are magical! What a place! Almost like a bit of the Caribbean
, completely out of place
My migration has been opposite to yours -- did a lot of sailing in the Med before discovering the European Atlantic coasts --- yes, much more "technical" sailing, much better wind
, much less crowded. Not as warm
. Although I suspect that up here it is warmer in the depth
of winter, than it is in much of the Med. As a result of the Gulf Stream
. The February has been colder than usual, but still many days reaching 10C, and sunshine.
My latest discovery has been the Baltic
-- absolutely marvelous. I am going back there in May to spend the summer, like last year.
Anyway, good luck and enjoy the forum.
