We were just an in love couple of idiots from Bristol, who quit our jobs to follow Simons life long dream of sailing around the world.The plan was to escape the rat race & sail towards the sun, enjoying a simple and stress free life whilst sipping rum.
In April 2014 Simon bought a 37 foot Yacht named Tudor Rose, neither of us knew how to sail but 16 months on after many weekends & holidays on the boat we moved on board all set to make our sailing dream a reality.We sailed down France, Spain, Portugal, to the Canaries where we made the 3000 mile passage across the Atlantic Ocean to Saint Lucia.
Clearly all the rum went to our heads because 6 months into our trip and only 6 weeks after arriving in the Caribbean we found out we were expecting our first child. Now our baby Daughter Daisy is the newest member of the crew living onboard with us.
This blog is to track our journey capturing photos, experiences & emotions so that friends, family & anyone who cares can follow us. We hope you enjoy it!

Hi Kevin, Ha we always talk about you and wonder how you are getting on and if you ever left for the west. Cedeira was a funny place, our stay was made worse with that storm keeping us stuck there. Johnson63812@gmail.com, drop me an email when you get a chance, and we will have a good catch up. Hopefully see each other too once you arrive.
Yo simon, holly &srumpy, sent you guys an email my addy is firstname.lastname@example.org
Not long now and you will be back on the water. Hope all goes well with the transition from land to sea with baby Daisy. Im sure it will have it’s teething problems but hang in there and I’m sure it will come good. Best wishes Tracey off Why Not xx

Arrived St Lucia Jan 28th Kevin
Hi Kev, we have emailed you numerous times in the last few months. We were getting worried. Where are you now? Would be good to meet up
yo guys, I’m still in Rodney bay. Would love to meet up some time. Kevin
yo Simon Holly Daisy and Scrumptiouslyratbag, I killed my phone shortly after arriving, so couldn’t check emails until I bought an android tablet last month. I also killed my engine 3 days out of Sal, so if you want me to come to you, can you give me an easy anchorage I can sail into? Rodney bay was easy, so something similar, or do you guys wanna come here. All the best Kevin
