RYA Day Skipper




Third of four leg trip from Solent, UK to southern Portugal via Ireland, departing UK mid August. Expected arrival in Galicia early September at Ria Muros, just south of Finisterre, handy for Santiago airport.
This leg is about exploring the Rias and Islas Cies near Vigo, with an eye to the weather as summer runs out, then it's long legs down to Portugal and the Rio Guadiana.
The sails are easily handled and the boat is dry and comfy at sea. 75hp engine, Navtex weather, AIS, Raymarine plotter and autohelm, life raft, epirb, new flares and extinguishers. New running rigging. Upgraded lifelines. New fridge. Hot and cold running water with shower. One Baby Blake head. Lots of towels, bedding, warm clothes aboard to assist your light travel. Two dinghies, kayak, canoe and SUP. Solar and wind generator. Inverter with lots of USB plug ins. Carrying tools and spares galore.
I've got loads of crewing experience world wide. Skippered this boat 7 years, mainly local, France, Scillies.
