That's a Wrap...

Updated: Oct 1, 2023

Morning Everyone,

Sitting on the train to the penultimate day of the Monaco Yacht Show, I started to reflect on what a fantastic season it has been.

Stromboli, Dubrovnik, Korcula, Split, Hvar, Rovinj, Venice, Naples, Portofino, Corsica, Sardinia and everything else in between.

My First season on board the stunning Baltic 145 has been nothing but exciting, no day is ever the same or boring. At the beginning of the season, I was thrown literally in at the deep end being new on board and stepping up into the mate role for a short period. The learning curve was steep but very rewarding to learn the boat quickly and once they returned I learned even more. I learnt early in my yachting career that every day is a learning and the day you think you've nothing left to learn you're in trouble.


I started shaped by the sea a month into the season on the 6th of July, this was the perfect escape into my thoughts of the places we had visited so far or the sailing we’d done that day. It's been a fantastic way to document my adventures so far, I cannot wait to be able to write about what adventures are to come, but for now, let's wrap up the 2023 Med season with the highlights...


Highlights of the Season

  1. Sailing into Venice, a bucket list

  2. Sail Gp Saint Tropez

  3. Baltic Rendesvous

  4. Seeing Stromboli up close

  5. The EXTREMELY competitive paddle boarding competition.



That's a wrap...
