We FINALLY got what we've been waiting for! Warm, blue, clear waters to practice our freediving and just float around relaxing 😌 
Though it was raining, we loved every minute of it. 

This is our happy place, what's yours? 

"From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free."

We made it to Gibraltar!! It's even suprised us how fast we've got here 😂😂 we're feeling super accomplished and ready for a few days exploring. We also reached a bit of a milestone today, 1500 nautical miles we've now sailed. Not bad for two absolute noobs 🙃

You really can do so much more than you ever expected if you just get out and do it. This time last year we'd only done short sails around the Solent, now we've gone from England to Gibraltar just the two of us on a 28ft sailboat. Anything is possible in this crazy world we live in 😅

No matter how many whales, dolphins, sharks or turtles I see, it never gets old (clearly 😂). Making the most of our time in West Oz with @brinkleydavies (videos coming soon) before we leave Australia for our next big stint. We just got Darwin’s all clear to leave the country too hehe his passport photo is hilarious. 
Ps happy birthday @chippawilson 🕺🏼

We hadn't planned on heading up the Guadiana river, but after chatting with @sailing_amanaki decided to tag along with them and check it out. 

It was so much more than we were expecting. An incredible mix of lush green landscape and what looked like the wild west! Sailing up the river felt so calm and peaceful. We also had to go under our first bridge which was nerve wracking 😬

We picked up a mooring ball in Laranjeiras, and can't recommend this spot highly enough. Ran by Scott (a lovely Scottish guy who can't do enough to help you), it's picturesque, had a sky full of stars at night and water warm enough to swim in. Heaven!

We are happy to be in Brest and are preparing to cross the Bay of Biscay. Our trip through the English Channel has been much better than expected. We had great wind and up to 15m/s one morning. So happy that we got the company of dolphins every day 🐬

We talk about our catamaran a lot but rarely about our dinghy. Our dinghy is essentially our car and our preferred way to go to shore and after a year of driving this thing around we can confidently say we made a great purchase.

After reviewing all the options available on the market, we went for an aluminium bottom, hypalon 360cm 3D tender with a 20HP Suzuki outboard. We were very close to ordering a white 25HP but the engine was significantly heavier for the extra speed (probably a bit much for our davit system too) and our broker ordered the wrong colour… anyway we got over it.

Things we take with us in the dinghy:
* a lock (we lock our outboard and fuel tank everywhere we go, no exception made)
* repair kit and pump
* a water scoop (needed trust me!)
* a small anchor with 20m line
* a portable VHF radio
* if it’s a long or bumpy ride, life jackets
* light straps at night
* not in the dinghy but always on the big boat, 2 spare dinghy keys (and they sink so we recommend attaching a floating key ring to the set you use)

A lot of lagoon owners also buy the white outboard support piece that cost around €1,000 (no comment on the price). We were also strongly advised to get it for longer passages but after careful consideration we decided not to take it as  our outboard was to heavy to be lifted in and out that easily. Any thoughts?

Hey 19 knots! 

Short sail from Mondello to Scopello with double windspeed of what was forecasted 😉 we used the opportunity to practice some maneuvers and hand-steer for a bit. With no waves we reached steady speed of 7 knots - which is a good speed for us !
