Sailing to Svalbard

It is now a couple of months since we have been back in the UK. Typically time has gone very quickly and we have been very busy. I have made two pairs of spoon oars and we have also been getting our Pilot Cutter's rowing punt 'Defiant of Lyme Regis' ready for the Boats that Built Britain exhibition at the National Maritime Museum. Follow this link for the press release:

We have also been looking for our next adventure which we are now delighted to be able to confirm. Rae and I are going to be sailing onboard Dolphin, an original Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter. This beautiful vessel is owned by Roger Capps and we are pleased to be part of his crew sailing her to Svalbard. We have booked our flights and are very excited by this new adventure. 

Dolphin is moored in Ornes, Norway and we will  be joining the vessel in mid June. When we join the vessel we will assist in getting her ready for passage to Svalbard which is an archipelago located in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between Norway and the North Pole, for more information folow this link to  the official Norway tourism website
