Sailing across the English Channel

We spend the summer sailing around the English channel, the Scilly Isles and the Channel Islands as a shake down cruise to prepare Fair Isle for long term cruising. Living aboard a sailboat long term is very different from weekend sailing so we are dealing with all the changes we need to make for a voyaging sailboat. We will be adding lots of tips on anything to do with sailing on our new website. There's a 'Tips and Tricks' page and a technical page for all the geeky stuff. Or you can just watch the pretty pictures and follow our sailing journey. http://www.sailingfairisle.com/index.html preparing a sail boat | yacht maintenance | voyaging | ocean sailing | blue water sailing | sailing vlogs youtube | best sailing vlogs on youtube | life at sea | live aboard | unique sailing vlogs | new sailing vlogs | cruising the med. | mediterranean sailing | mediterranean cruising | latest sailing vlogs | sailing adventure videos | latest sailing adventure videos | sailing lifestyle | cruising lifestyle | cutter rigged sailing | sailing cruising lifestyle | sailing liveaboard lifestyle | cooking at sea | latest sailing adventures | sailing lifestyle channel | best sailing blogs youtube | sailing youtube channels youtube sailing yachts | amazing sailing videos | ocean sailing videos | sailing journey | sailing around the world youtube | sailing channels on youtube | good sailing channels | best sailing channels.

It’s a pity you missed Fowey. I actually prefer it to Dartmouth!

Yes it is a pity, I’ve never been there and many people have told me how nice it is. If it’s better than Dartmouth it must be great! Maybe we’ll get back up there sometime, for the moment we’re enjoying the sun. I’ve almost forgotten what rain was, we sailed in shorts and swam in the sea to cool down today, never done that in Blighty in October!

how did you find the size of the boat for this loop?


big enough for comfort? small enough for the tight harbours/marinas?

I've been enjoying all your videos, thank you for sharing. This one took me back to all the great South Coast cruising grounds, Helford and the Scilly Isles in particular. Cheers!

Yes the Helford and the Scillys were our favorites too. If you could rely on the weather there would be no better place in the world!

Hi, what a great trip! I was wondering, how long did you spend doing the round trip, including days sight seeing etc.?
Sailing Fair Isle
Sailing Fair Isle - 5 years ago
We took 2 months so very leisurely, mainly day sails and lots of days off for sightseeing, long weekend in Dartmouth, five days around the Scillys and a week in Jersey, things like that. It's great to have the time to explore. The trip we are doing at the moment is a bit more hectic as we have to stick to the schedule on ACR Portugal. The only downside really on what has been a great trip. I'm writing this as we sail along the coast of the Algarve just approaching the last stop in Lagos, so you can see all about it in episode 3 when I've finished editing if you're interested.
