Steel Schooner Heading South

Howdy ya'll,

We've just started cruising after five years of rebuilding a schooner from a bare hull on the UK south coast.

We crossed Biscay July this year and coast hopped down through Spain and Portugal, where we're currently in the process of swapping our foremast for something slightly larger (and increasing our sail plan to something more usable).

Calypso's on the hard at the moment while we sort the mast, but we have a relaunch date of Oct 27th and can't wait to get back cruising..

Give us a shout if you're also heading south via Lisbon this season.

nathan & lauren

Off to the Caribbean after 5 years of building!!

Re: Steel Schooner Heading South

Cool little ship. Welcome to the forum.
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow - what a ride!"
