I’m sailing with Marc and Clare to Lymington to renew the standing rigging as part of the preparation for the circumnavigation. Afterwards we’d sail south to Las Palmas, Gran Canaria to join the ARC in November crossing the Atlantic to St Lucia.

The year after, we then would join the World ARC and start the circumnavigation.


Friday, July 17th 2020, I dropped off Marc and Clare in IJmuiden. They were leaving IJmuiden forever…  finally

Next morning I joined them again in Scheveningen where we left around 11:15 hr.

The weather was fair, winds 15 kts. but on the nose, so we motor sailed for a bit. Marc and I stayed on deck till we crossed the TSS. At 05:00 hr. Clare and Aimee, our niece who joined us for the trip to Lymington, took over.
