Ludo Finishes sail around UK

As I previously posted Ludo had undertaken the massive challenge of sailing around Britain in a wayfarer dinghy. After 76 days from departure, Ludo has completed his fantastic voyage and at the same time raised over £50,000 for charity. What an amazing achievement and his blog makes a very interesting read!

Visit my harbour

Recently I subscribed to the Visit my harbour website which is a fantastic resource for anyone that has to navigate around coastal waters. For a once only payment of £25, members get access to 600+ UK charts.

From this you can take screenshots of your intended sailing area and print + laminate them to make A4 sized waterproof charts to take afloat. Fantastic for planning a trip. You can also overlay the charts on google earth allowing you to review you GPS tracks on a nautical charts.
