Yachts and Yarns

If you’re interested in sailing, things maritime and the salty road to freedom, then pour yourself a glass of the finest and settle down to listen to my occasional chat. I talk about whatever falls off the top of my head. I don’t follow a script, and although it's usually about yachting and the sea, I’ve also been known to include my other passions, such as classic cars or motorbikes. There’s even the odd rant.

Cruising / Sailing 

The Astrolabe Sailing blog began back in 2014 as a place for me to store my Ocean Yachtmaster study notes. Since then it has evolved in to much bigger than that.

I’ve loved sharing some of my many adventures along with some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way. It has been a great way to connect with other adventurous people, and I’ve managed to meet up with some of you along the way.

My home port is Lyttelton Harbour – on the East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. 43.60° S, 172.72° E.

The Cruising Sailboat

There's something rather special about a sailboat...

But there's definitely something really special about a cruising sail boat. Size isn't it - large or small - they all have it. Neither do they have to be stunningly beautiful or hugely expensive.



" It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice "

We Started sailing in 1986 on  Lake  Windermere in England

W  on a 21 foot power boat call Sea-ye-later 

I never thought I would still be on the water 35 years and 65,000 sea miles  later
