A Proposal At Sea, Sailing RM To Her New Home.

A while ago we made the decision to move Ruby May to a new home. Last week, the day finally came to slip lines at MDL Chatham Marina for the last time and head to our new base. An incredible (speedy) sail from Chatham to Eastbourne, saw us take in the Red Sands towers, and the SS Montgomery wreck for the last time. We had an amazing sunset, and sunrise, and got the best send off from the resident seals at Margate Sands. The memory that will stay with me forever though, was of the most incredible marriage proposal en route, from my partner in crime, and soul mate, Hodge.

Throwback to Summer Sailing – A holiday on the UK South Coast

It’s funny to be writing this in the deep mid-winter, but one of my New Year resolutions is to write more. I’ve been blogging for the last 7yrs, but have not always been able to share or blog as much as I would like, so this year, I will. And to kick that off, I’m going to bring you some of the wonderful trips, experiences and sailing adventures that I’ve had in the last couple of years but haven’t shared thus far!

In this blog, I’m going to share with you some memories of a fantastic family sailing holiday that we took last August, exploring some of the South Coast of the UK, including Salcombe, Hope Cove, Brighton, Dartmouth, and more.
