Welcome to our blog. This year we are going to be sailing in home waters after bringing Harvard, our 36 foot Rustler sailing yacht, home from Denmark in 2021. We would have liked to stay longer in the Baltic, but with the uncertainty created by the pandemic, Brexit and the tax status of yachts being returned to the UK, we decided to return to our home port of Southampton. Harvard was laid up in the yard at our home sailing club, Marchwood YC, and after a rather last minute rush to be already to relaunch we were finally back in the water on 30 April.
An added complication for our plans is that our daughter is expecting a baby in mid-May, so as grandparents for the first time, we do not want to be far away so that we can meet our granddaughter and provide any support needed. As this will be in London, ports of call with a railway station become especially important!!
