Our sailing adventure so far...
We have been building the 'Disco Volante' since 2005.
It started off as the imagination of a Naval Architect, but now it's finished!
Photo diary of the build here - Boat photos
Sarah has limited sailing experience and is going to learn as she goes - Completed ICC & Day Skipper only. Michael has been sailing since he was young, but hasn't been on a long trip like this before. Though has sailed to France & Ireland from Wales. Has also chartered yachts in Croatia, LA & in the Solent.
We left Bristol on Sunday 1st June 2014 for our years adventure. We started off in Cornwall (For longer than expected due to some boat teething problems).
So far we have visited...
France - Belle Ille
Spain - Gallicia, Marbella, Malaga, Andalusia, Costa Callida, Balearics..
Portugal - Lisbon, Porto, Algarve, Rio Guadiana
Italy - Sardinia & Sicily
We pulled the boat out of the water at the end of November 2014 and went off back-packing in Thailand, after an early Christmas in London, Wales & Bristol.
We went back in the water after Disco Volante was newly anti-fouled and winter maintenance finished. We set sail from the marina in Malta at the end of February. Currently we are slowly starting our long sail back to UK (We need to be back for Mike to start his job on 16th June 2015), stopping off at some of our favourite places and also checking out some new ones too!
