Earlier this year, the journey started in Seattle and ended in San Francisco. This time around, San Francisco was our point of departure. To be more precise: the welcoming surroundings of the St. Francis Yacht Club (www.stfyc.com).

I tried my hardest to ignore the view...

My charming social-media assistant loves his Throw-Back Thursdays!

It’s time I got into the act. 

Especially as today is the day which ended a long campaign for a group of Americans (and without it, I wouldn’t have started my own endeavour of writing a book).

A quick remi...

If one is interested in sailing and reading about sailing, one knows who John Rousmaniere is. And when he talks at the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes about history connected to the America’s Cup, well, what can I say? ‘My agent’ got me a place at the dinner table and a...

My first 'fitting out' dinner: a celebration of the opening of the sailing season. What better occasion than to celebrate one’s own beginning; a – special - birthday?

I was honoured to be a guest of the Island Sailing Club in Cowes on the Isle of Wight and join them in...

We couldn't leave the Netherlands without a visit to the HISWA, the Dutch equivalent of the London Boat Show. Also because this time Sparrowhawk was legitimately on the shelf!
