Follow the adventures of Ian and Lorraine


Many years ago, so long ago I can’t remember, Ian persuaded me to pack up and sail off and see more of the world.  I don’t exactly remember agreeing to this but yet again, he’s persuaded me that I did!  This adventure started in May 2017.

We gave up work, me in September 2016 and Ian at Christmas 2016 and spent some time at the beginning of 2017 travelling around Asia.

Our first season we set off on 8th May 2017 and sailed from Canvey Island, across to France then along the Atlantic coast and finally into the Mediterranean where we wintered in Cartagena, Spain.

We left Cartagena on 18th April 2018 and we plan to take in more of Spain including the Balearics and then across to Sardinia and work away down to Sicily for the winter.

We spent our second winter in Licata, Sicily and our third season (2019) exploring Greece and her Islands before arriving in Kas, Turkey for the winter.

Cuffysark spent longer in Turkey than originally anticipated, a mixture of the covid pandemic and family health issues. Cuffysark was in Kas for two winters and 2021/2022 she was in Finike just a little way up the coast.
