2018

These are our adventures in 2018. This was the year that we bought the Lass and brought her home to Liverpool, we then had a mini adventure joining the fleet for the 99th Isle of Man race from Liverpool to the Isle of Man. From there we sailed up to Whitehaven where we got stuck for a few days before our long sail back to Liverpool. After that it we had an Irish Sea adventure of about five weeks before we returned to Liverpool to begin our boat projects.

Raising money for the RNLI

We were only on our third sail in our brand new boat to us and we had to call the coast guard for assistance. That assistance came in the shape of a RNLI boat from Portpatrick, so we have decided to raise money for the RNLI through our Damsels in distress page on just giving, that way you know that any money goes straight to them. We have set ourselves a target of £500 and we would like to honour our pledge, so if you like our videos then please give a little to those who rescue people in the seas around the UK.
