Winter Sailing!

550 miles to Scotland from the South Coast in December and not one other yacht spotted en route...

It was a fabulous trip!

Re: Winter Sailing!

Nice video, Pete. Cold water sailing is a unique experience. Good luck and safe sailing.

Re: Winter Sailing!

Something about Mad Dogs and Englishmen comes to mind.

I really enjoy the videos you post of your deliveries. Thanks for that

Re: Winter Sailing!


Hi - Mike and I sailed the Northumbrian coast year round and apart from the odd fog and high seas in winter - it taught us to be safe, adventurous sailors mindful of weather. Sailing in winter is at times lonely, but what wonderful uninterrupted vistas can be logged into our memory banks. We sailed in winter in the Puget Sound area but are now enjoying the summer season in Tasmania. Thanks for the memories. Sue
