Sailors no more..

After 35 years of sailing holidays, 30 of them in the same boat, we have realized that the time has come to move on. We have sold our boat, the s/y Necessity, and today she was delivered to her new owners. No doubt we will shed a few tears tonight, but we know she is in good hands.

We will also have to learn new skills, such as planning ahead and making reservations, rather than letting the wind take us where it wants. The good news is that we have a lot of new ground to discover - any part of Sweden beyond walking distance of a marina along the south-east coast of Sweden is virgin territory to us..
