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.

Arriving at sunset, we berthed in Hamilton Dock which is a recent extension to the marina. It's a converted fish dock, and as well as other yachts we were alongside a wind farm support vessel. It was pretty late so we stayed on board and saved exploring the town until the morning.

Hello, I saw your site and thought I might ask a couple of questions if that's OK. My FIL was on gun boats based in Hamilton Dock in the second war.
Can you tell me how far the Wherry Hotel is from that dock,and can you tell me if these boats ever went into the Oulton Broad. I am sure my FIL saiod they did but he could have been wrong. In the 70s my mother moved from London to Commodore Rd near the hotel and opposite her flat was a small area with a shed for boats. I wondered what the name of that was. I am afraid to say the manager took his own life there and I wondered if the MGBs used that bit of water. You may also be interested in the fact my FIL heled unload the Windrush when it arrived at Tilbury and did a speech at the War Museum Lambeth in the 90s. Hope you can help James
