Last weekend I helped a couple deliver their new yacht from the UK to Guernsey. They had already joined us from the Baltic back to the UK and have been keenly learning along the way.

Our trip to St Peter Port was their final leg with professional assistance. They are now on their own and are planning to sail all the way to Sydney!

I think that they will be the first to admit that they are still beginners. We have worked hard to ensure that they will be safe as they carry on South to Gibraltar, and of course beyond!

They are incredibly brave to take on such an epic adventure - talking to them is truly inspiring. Having instructed hundreds of people, it is rare to come across two who are so spirited and keen to conquer the world...

I have no doubt that they will learn very quickly and by the time they reach Sydney will be true experts!

It was a very wet and cold sail to Guernsey... I hope you enjoy the video:

It really was a privilege to be a small part of their huge adventure...
