Congratulations one and all!
An epic voyage spanning some 15 years is now drawing to a conclusion. A combination of family holidays, races and A to B passages has allowed the relatively wee Chsalonina and its crew to see some of the planet's most amazing scenery from a perspective unique to sailors. In doing so, you have battled with everything from the short, violent seas spanning oceanic and Continental plate margins to some of the largest bottomless oceans that appear endless and experience every conceivable weather system. Miraculously despite at times the relentless and disregarding nature of some waters, reefs and even anchorages; Chsalonina has been skippered to emerge pretty well unscathed unlike many before her.
You can all be very proud of your achievement and will no doubt have many moments of reflection in the years to come.(whilst sifting through the 1000's of photos and 'cine' footage no doubt).
Well done.

Philip & Michele

In May 1996 Chizol left the shores of Malta bound for England - since then she has been across the Atlantic to the Caribbean and back to Mallorca
She then left Gibraltar in October 2009 and should arrive back in Malta tomorrow morning having sailed around the world
