Hi Everyone


A Big Thank you to you all for watching over us, praying for our safe journey across the oceans and taking a keen interest in our adventures.  For a while our travels are over but we will be returning in Sept, so watch this space.


The latest news is ;- Suzie Too the Moody our current boat is on her way back via the Azores to the UK, Ancasta who are our Agents in the UK have several people interested in purchasing her, so that good news.  We will just have to unload all of our personal stuff when she gets back to Gosport and then hopefully she will go to a good home and someone that will care for her as we have done for the last 4 years.


We fly back into the UK on Friday 12th June and we will be around until September, our plans at the moment are to have time to catch up with everybody, family, friends and to do some work, to make our picture books with all of our photos and sign for the delivery of our new Suzie Too.


Our new boat is still in the Lille factory in Belgium and will be delivered to the UK by truck without the keel or mast fitted in July.  She will be fitted out and commissioned in the Hamble at Hamble Point and we should take delivery of her around mid August time.  We will have a month shake down where we will sail her up and down the Solent to see if anything falls off, then come middle of September we will set sail again, heading for the Caribbean arriving mid to the end of November.


It will be great to be back for a while, we look forward to seeing you soon.


We will be at the Southampton Boat show on the preview day Friday in September, if you have the time to meet up.  Just ring me on the mobile to arrange 07770742333 anytime.


Love to you all


Suzanne & David
