Well after 8 years we decided to sell our lovely 32 ft sloop “Enterprise”. She had kept us safe and looked after us over many passages in the English Channel, forever compensating for all our foolish mistakes as we learned what sailing was all about. We were happy to hand her over to great new owners Nick and Angie however, and their blog can be found here.
It was with some trepidation that we set out to see if we could afford a boat that would do the same job for us, but this time for our plan to circumnavigate!
The “new” Enterprise would have to have the same qualities as the “old” one – it would have to be a better sailor than we are! – it would have to keep us safe even when we make the occasional (but inevitable) error of judgement – or of skill 🙂
