    What a cracking boat! Have you sailed on a Contessa 32 before? We passed Alex Thomson as he was sailing back to Portsmouth. No sign of him though, I think he must have been down below in the warm! Here's the film: Pete

    Have you been through the Corinth Canal? I hope you enjoy this time-lapse journey. It was filmed last summer whilst on a yacht delivery from Italy to Turkey: https://youtu.be/PW-MDz7_pgs Pete

    I am just back from a fabulous yacht delivery to Turkey! The owners were on board and I was teaching them to Coastal Skipper level (RYA). Lovely people, great food and some excellent sailing! I hope you enjoy the video: https://youtu.be/aYUQh1UDnk0 Pete

    Whilst on a yacht delivery from North Wales to Southern Spain we spotted a Fin Whale and managed to capture him up close and personal on the starboard bow! Lots of lovely dolphins too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtUCtCqkM9Q I hope you enjoy it! Pete

    I have delivered many different yachts of all shapes and size. There is something certainly pretty special about the HR range! Here's a short video showing some of the highlights during the yacht delivery of a Hallberg Rassy 37 from the Netherlands to North Wales...

    Drugs were of major concern - Luckily we where able to meet the owners out in Venezuela - no white suits, convertible sports cars or guys with machine guns insight, so we knew we would be OK! Here is part one of the video: https://youtu.be/81N207SpMIg I hope you enjoy it! Pete

    A short video that was filmed and edited by one of the crew on board a lovely Rustler 42 during a Trans Atlantic crossing that finished earlier this month. https://youtu.be/UczKp6aFV30 The owner was originally thinking about taking her back by ship, but his son was keen to sail her home; so...

    A common route for me, and this time there was no sign of the typical Northerlies along the Portuguese coast! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtI8ErigV2g&feature=youtu.be I hope you enjoy the video... Pete

    The Island Packet 380 is a lovely yacht! We were very lucky to recently sail one to Gibraltar. Fresh conditions across Biscay, typical trade winds along the Portuguese coast and of course some amazing dolphins! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXRgy4D5lws I hope you enjoy it! Pete

    Here is a short video taken whilst crossing the Atlantic on board a Prout 33. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ONtusbbrYo A few snags along the way; and the trip took a lot longer than we'd expected - but Gemini Too performed excellently. The Prout 33 is a great boat! Pete

    We recently had the pleasure of delivering a 1977 Cheoy Lee Clipper 42 from the UK to Greece. It was all filmed with a very poor quality camera, and unfortunately for a 4 week passage there wasn't much footage to play with. I guess the crew were busy doing other things. ;-) I hope you enjoy...

    I have always been a fan of Bowman Yachts - fantastic blue water cruisers! We were lucky enough to deliver a Bowman 40 from Portugal to the UK this summer. Unfortunately the typical Portuguese Northerlies were in full force, so the start of the trip was delayed a bit to get a good weather...

    A short film taken during the delivery of a Beneteau 393 from Hamble to Troon: A real mixed bag of conditions, but by all accounts an excellent yacht and a great trip! Pete

    On a recent delivery back from Southern Spain, the crew filmed some magnificent Pilot Whales (in the Med). Also hundreds of Dolphins, and they caught a whale blowing as they crossed Biscay. Probably a Fin Whale... Halcyon Yacht Delivery - Hanse 411 - Altea to Ipswich - YouTube Has anyone else...

    Earlier this year we delivered a Malo 36 from Crete to the UK. Here is a short video that I have just edited together: Amazingly they had S and SW winds all the way up the Portuguese coast. A lovely boat and perfect conditions! Pete

    We recently helped with the delivery of a Lagoon 560 from Corfu to Sicily. Here is a short film (recorded by the crew) showing some of the journey. A real mixture of conditions; no wind, and then some quite strong winds - typical Mediterranean stuff! The Lagoon took it all in her stride... A...
