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.

After a reasonable night's sleep, we zipped back to Merchala where we had arranged to meet our new friends Nasaraia Yadav and Chandra Sekhar. They are involved in an environmental project which includes a tree planting programme, using natural shade to keep cool as an alternative to aircon. We each planted a Mahindra tree outside the local registrar's office, had another few hundred pictures taken followed by an audience with the local Chief of Police. Nasaraia also sent us a copy of the article he had written when we first came through town; we were sent off with more presents of fruit, buns and cake for the journey.

The rest of the day was spent on a hair-raising 6-hour bus trip across the hills to Sri Sailem; disappointing not to be cycling all the way but swithback turns on a hilly single track road through tiger territory would not have been much fun anyway.
