I joined She of Feock on the 28th December 2010, sailing from Portimao, Portugal to Morocco and the Canaries.  I took a break and rejoined SV Faraway for 3 months then came back to sail the Azores archipelago in the yacht, then sailed directly from the smallest island, Corvo to Hamble. It took us eleven days and six hours. I lived aboard for 6 months and now sail regularly in the Solent.  The boat is currently in Hamble, Hampshire, England.

We even went to a wedding using the boat as our transport and overnight accommodation. Here’s my arrival at Buckler’s Hard for a sailor’s wedding.
