About this Blog

Jane and I have dreamed about dropping everything and sailing away for an extended cruise since before we were married (1976). This Blog is to capture the dream!


“Brittainia” – We found our dream boat!

On a cruise in 2011 on our Pearson 30 Tailwind, we re-visited the idea of taking an extended cruise. We came to the conclusion that Tailwind was not enough boat, and that if we didn’t start planning immediately, we might never pull it off!

I started searching for a suitable boat on the Internet that winter. We wanted a boat that still maintained some of the aesthetics of the classic boats we grew up on, but had the advantages of space and livability of newer designs.
