Future Plans

Winter 2009/10We are spending the winter afloat in Turkey at the new marina at Alanya
Summer 2010We will probably go up the Turkish coast, returning down the Aegean,
and maybe visit Crete on the way back to Cagliari in Sardinia
Winter 2010/11We hope to return to New Zealand (by air of course!)
Summer 2011Leave the Med, visit the Azores, and return to Brittany/UK
