What's new on this site?
Sadly, not a lot! We are still living on Fuga, but planning to move ashore in September 2015. Fuga has been 'for sale' for some time, we have her priced to reflect her cruising extras and recent upgrades and renewals, but we have had zero real interest. In 2016 we may take her down to La Villaine, the river in southern Brittany. We don't plan to give her away just yet! Meanwhile we have done a little sailing in the summer months. I am writing this up the canal at Caen.
This web site is about our experiences since 2003, living on board Fuga. We have cruised from the UK and into the Mediterranaean as far as Cyprus, and back via the Azores. We hope that amongst its pages you will find amusement, inspiration, or simply some useful information.
All good things must come to an end sometime. We are now reconciled to the fact that in order to move on from life aboard we need to find Fuga a new owner who will appreciate and take advantage of the extra liveaboard features she now has. If you might be seriously interested, please get in touch.
Meanwhile we will continue sailing based in France or the UK. We hope also to continue travelling, and will visit New Zealand for the northern winters when we can.
We enjoy hearing from people who have found this web site. Perhaps you found what you were looking for, or maybe it raises other questions we might answer? Please don't hesitate to get
in touch with any comments, suggestions, or questions.

|Making it happen||Why go sailing?
None of us know what is in store for us in the future. If you want to do something badly enough, you can make it happen, but you have to be prepared to plan and work for it. If you accept the constraints of cruising on a budget , then a life afloat is surprisingly accessible.
If you have never sailed, you must give it a try. You will either love it or hate it! It does not matter what you sail or where you sail, a dinghy on a lake, or cruising the oceans, the fundamental attractions and challenges are much the same. Many cruising people enjoy arriving and being at new places, but do not particularly enjoy the bit in between. In John's case, he inherited the sailing bug, but for Mo it was acquired with the territory!.
