2019

In 2019 there was a lot of boat projects, Salty Lass was set up as a day cruiser and we wanted to live aboard full time. As usual it always takes longer than you think and it was the end of May before we finally left Liverpool. We then went on an adventure cruising around Scotland and Northern Ireland, before returning to Liverpool to see family and friends. We left Liverpool to Conwy and cruised along the North coast of Wales. We then decided that the weather was getting too bad for cruising so we decided to move to Bangor for six months to complete yet more boat projects and get in some winter sailing.

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.
