10 Stars for Sevenstar

Last day STT 024Last day STT 040Question: What’s the quickest way for a yacht to cross the Atlantic? Answer: On a cargo ship! And that’s exactly what Ocean Rainbow is doing. Finally, after almost 16,000nm she gets a holiday and is letting the m/v Floretgracht take the strain! We’re meeting OR in Southampton and sailing her back to Portishead where we will renew her rigging and replace her instruments before setting off next year for a trip down the canals to the Mediterranean. So, instead of sitting on the hard in Trinidad doing the upgrades we shall be back in our house with OR tucked up in the marina – a mere 10 minute walk – and our grandchildren an easy car ride away when we’re bored with boat jobs!! Idyllic …. well, apart from the climate change! Grateful thanks to Wiebke (Sevenstar), Andrew (Yacht Shipping Limited) and the staff at STT Cargo for all their help.

    You must be feeling a little sad at the end of the adventure, as well as excited to be coming back to the family. When are you home? Look forward to seeing you before too long. xx
