2018

These are our adventures in 2018. This was the year that we bought the Lass and brought her home to Liverpool, we then had a mini adventure joining the fleet for the 99th Isle of Man race from Liverpool to the Isle of Man. From there we sailed up to Whitehaven where we got stuck for a few days before our long sail back to Liverpool. After that it we had an Irish Sea adventure of about five weeks before we returned to Liverpool to begin our boat projects.
