Sunday 24 August 2014

John and Catherine Granshaw took a year career break from their jobs in mid 2014 to sail their Moody 47 to warmer climes.

The journey so far:
  • Early June we sailed from Swanwick where the boat had been kept to Plymouth ready for the Bay of Biscay.
  • Mid June we undertook the 4 day crossing of the Bay of Biscay in near perfect weather arriving in La Coruna
  • July was spent back in the UK clearing the house so we could rent it out
  • August we were back on the boat and sailing South visiting the Spanish Rias on the way.
  • Late August and we are about to set off further South along Portugal on the way to Lisbon.
The plan is to sail from Lisbon to Teneriffe via Madeira with two friends who will be joining us on 23 September (Steve and Annie Ball). We will sail around the Canary Islands before departing across the Atlantic with the ARC on 24 November.
