After a Winter of getting ready, with lots of boat projects including adding Starlink we are ready to set off for Portugal on the 31st May. It will be a bitter sweet day as we have loved our time at Wicor and have been here 17 years with 4 boats but its time for something new.

Falken is in great shape and having sailed her in some pretty rough conditions over the last month I know we can Trust here to get us accross Biscay whatever it throws at us

Somewhere New
