We have found great new owners for Njord and we will be passing her on to her new owners on May 1, 2023.

We have had the most amazing seasons sailing her in the UK from June 2012 and then from May 2014 in the Med until April 2023; 11 fabulous years of Njord’s glorious adventures

January 2022 - Marina di Ragusa

26 February 2022 | Marina di Ragusa
The year has started off with very cool evenings and cold overnight, the days very windy but with some beautiful sunny days. This weather is somewhat different to the previous winters we have spent here, but then the weather in the UK and rest of Europe has been unusual too.

This photograph was taken mid January on our pontoon by Njord. I managed to do my yoga practice this particular day here as there was no wind at all, beautiful.

Vessel Name: Njord of London
Vessel Make/Model: Malo 39 Classic
Crew: Vic Farhi & Clare Harrison
About: Learnt to sail together and the first sailing experience was in Lanzarote in 2005. We then bought Mandarin, a Bavaria 39 and in June 2012 bought Njord, a Malo 39 from the Baltic.
Extra: As attributed to Mark Twain: Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bow lines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Approaching the southern end of the Messina Straits: It was very busy with cargo ships coming and going via the Messina Straits.  We were under sail on a nice beam reach and did not have to give way and it was a good but long passage from Roccella Jonica
