    Nice boat!
    By the way, I have an Ozzy friend in Mauritius, jailed for 30 years in 2005 for smuggling heroin (she was set up by some Kenyans). Fancy making her day?

    If you go via South Africa (Durban or Richards Bay) do look us up as we are currently in Durban for a while.

    We don't live on Kalessin but spend as much time cruising as finances and family permit. I work as a contractor or consultant, Sam [@Samwise] is nominally retired although currently he's doing more work than I am.

    The blog covers our 2006-8 trip round France, Portugal and Spain and back through the French canals, a couple of summers in the Netherlands, and our current adventures in the Baltic.

    Last week we had the very great pleasure of meeting up with a would-be Baltic sailor who knew about us only through the blog. We get a modest level of hits, mostly from family, friends and colleagues, but occasionally those who come across the blog while doing research.

    I think it would be worth doing if even if I was the only reader, as it encourages me to keep a diary of our cruises. In addition this summer my father hasn't been very well, and I know it has given him a lot of pleasure to keep up with our posts - and in return I have made a point of posting almost every day.

    Year 2 of a 10ish year circumnavigation on a 39ft Beneteau called Shiraz after the city of poets, gardens, wine, nightingales and flowers. I usually shorten that explanation to the city of love and peace. http://www.sailblogs.com/member/shiraz/

    Default Fuga

    The website deals with life aboard Fuga, a Dehler 41 deck saloon, over a period of 8 years, and includes a daily log, descriptions of places visited, details of the boat, and 'reflections' about life on board.

    Countries visited, since leaving the UK in 2004, are France, Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar, Morocco (Mellila and Ceuta only), Sardinia, Tunisia, Italy mainland, Croatia, Greece, Turkey and Cyprus.

    Now returning to the UK via the Azores in 2012..

    I am 28 and have been sailing for a year on a sexy Contessa 32, only made it as far as the Canaries, however I am leaving for Gambia in the next week, then across the pond to S America, debating going South or North at that point.

    We have just started our journey wintering in Vonitsa the blog is a little out of date but I am determined to get myself into the habit once we start in earnest in the new year.

    We love reading other sailing blogs so its good to add a few more to the list. I've found lots of useful advice from others who have been to an area that you can't get from a pilot book.

    We've now got a few friends in the 'virtual' world who we've made from them reading our blog, hopefully when we get to their neck of the woods we'll get to meet them in person. That makes it worth writing the occasional blog updates, plus it acts like a diary for ourselves of what we have done.

    We have two web sites, the first for our blogs that have covered sailing along the south coast from Brighton to Falmouth and back (2009), the western Baltic, Caledonian Canal and UK west coast in 2010 and this year's trip round the top of the UK to the Orkneys and down the east coast:

    and the second (which will be getting a revamp some time soon) where there is a bit more about the boat and us and where we post updates about some of the major jobs we have done to Emerald:
