STOCKHOLM TO GIBRALTAR

June 2015

 

This delivery was our first trip on board Avatar bringing her all the way from Sweden.  Many different friends joined us on the way and it was a great trip for all concerned.  Congratulations to Xavier for making it the whole way and gaining 2500 miles in the process.  it was also a great opportunity to practise using the sextant for those budding Yachtmaster Ocean students.

GIBRALTAR TO LANZAROTE

January 2016

 

This 650 mile trip was a great opportunity for Ben to build some miles and gain some experience of offshore sailing and longer passage making.  Not to mention life at sea and cooking onboard.

 

6 days non stop from Gibraltar to Lanzarote.  A couple of months later and Ben passed his Yachtmaster Offshore.
