On 16 June 2014, Yacht Alexandria left Shotley near Harwich and sailed round Britain, visiting Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Scotland, the Hebrides and Orkneys. The whole trip took 6 weeks, covered 2200 miles, involved 20 crew changes and took on some of the most difficult tidal waters and hostile coastline..and the British weather. A Challenge to be proud of. This is our blog.
We left Shotley today, and were through the lock at 0855 and had a lovely send off from the marina staff. Thank you. Winds are light from the North and it is a little swelly. Bryan and Tony and I are expecting the spring tide to take us to just off Ramsgate, ETA 1530, for a short stop to allow the tide to catch up! Then off through the night to Lymington.
