It's been over three years since our Indian adventure - and our last post we are ashamed to say!

Rose is now five and there has been an addition to our number: Rose's little brother William who is already two.

We upgraded our boat 'Windrush' last year and now have a much roomier Beneteau 323 which we keep on Lake Windermere in the English Lake District, easily one of the most beautiful locations in the world, even if the weather is fickle.

After a couple of years of working too hard, we have decided to take an extended holiday and use up some of the ridiculous amount of accrued holiday.
The plan is to spend the next nine weeks sailing all the way around the United Kingdom, and we will share our experience through this blog. We hope you enjoy following our journey.

Jon, Kate, Rose and William.

Getting to the Bay of Bengal.

That evening we caught an overnight train to Chirala where the Krishna River flows into the Bay of Bengal and at which point we had decided to begin our ride. Only Rose slept well on the train due to stereo snoring by our carriage companions. Our sleepless night did have some plus points though, as we got to watch the sun rise as we approached our destination. We arrived safe and well at Chirala but the same could not be said for our bikes which could not be seen! To our relief they arrived that evening so we had a beer with our dinner to celebrate and finalized our preparations for departing the following morning.
