The joy of life, the joy of sailing!
We have so many great memories from our holiday – from the kindness and warm welcomes of others on the waterways, to the hilarious fishing antics of our captain…not forgetting the blissful moments daydreaming while looking out across the water in silence – the only noise being the gentle purr of our Nicols 1100 in the background. This was a hugely rewarding experience that was full of joy.
