On August 1st 2016 we bought a 42 foot long wooden boat. We are also, apparently, both entirely sane.
Both of us have always been drawn to the sea and the need to see what’s over the horizon. After fantasising about it forever, the stars aligned and we were able to actually make it happen. We are now the proud owners of a Colin Archer Gaff Ketch, which we intend to sail around the world. At the moment we are trying to get both the boat and ourselves up to the necessary level to embark on our great adventure. Itchy feet or not, this isn’t something to rush in to.
