It's been over three years since our Indian adventure - and our last post we are ashamed to say!

Rose is now five and there has been an addition to our number: Rose's little brother William who is already two.

We upgraded our boat 'Windrush' last year and now have a much roomier Beneteau 323 which we keep on Lake Windermere in the English Lake District, easily one of the most beautiful locations in the world, even if the weather is fickle.

After a couple of years of working too hard, we have decided to take an extended holiday and use up some of the ridiculous amount of accrued holiday.
The plan is to spend the next nine weeks sailing all the way around the United Kingdom, and we will share our experience through this blog. We hope you enjoy following our journey.

Jon, Kate, Rose and William.

Approaching Lamlash on the Isle of Arran

We spent the night moored at Lamlash and toasted the day's sailing with some sea-chilled champagne. Rose spent the evening hanging around on deck.

Wednesday has been very wet with no wind, so we motored round to Broddick and come ashore for some supplies. Thanks to everyone leaving us comments on the blog, we're really enjoying reading them!

I would love to spend the day hanging around on deck although my stomach would spoil all you hard work in cleaning it!

Very jealous, hope the fishing is good and the wind picks up for you.

Have fun xxx

Dear Kate,
Congratulations and Welcome to Rose-lovely to see her enjoying the ocean.
It is many years since we met. I used to bring my son Yarrow to visit you and your Mum in Nottingham.
Love Sue
