The 2023 season summer cruise was cut short by 3 or 4 weeks due to a family emergency, if it hadn't been the mileage and hours at sea would have been much the same as in 2022.

"Days" are days on board away from home base, similarly nights are nights away from base and not at sea.

"Days Sailing" are days when I was at sea or moving through a Canal.

The count of places (marina, mooring or anchorage) visited includes every visit to a location, as of September 2023 there were 141 different locations.


Days weather bound were generally for strong winds and / or heavy seas but occasionally they were for adverse fresh winds or no wind on long legs (e.g. round Land's End to Wales or Ireland and Peterhead to Orkney).

On weather bound days I tend to be safely tucked away in a marina or on a Buoy (the latter mainly at Plockton and Tobermory)  with at least some facilities near by, hence the low percentage of nights at anchor in 2021 (40%) and 2022 (41%) compared with around 56 - 67% in other years.
