This is the story of a circumnavigation of Ireland aboard my 27ft yacht in 2011. From the Forth I went round Ireland anti-clockwise, which people tell me is the ’wrong way round’. Most of the journey was sailed solo. I skirted a lot of the bits of the ‘Celtic Fringe’. By sea Celtdom doesn't look so much a 'fringe' as the centre, a fact which I rant about quite a lot

This is the story of my cruise from Edinburgh to the Russian border aboard my 27ft yacht ‘Zophiel’. In 2012 we left the Forth to cross the North Sea. Though we had intended to go to Denmark, wimpiness and poor navigation took us to Holland instead. I sailed to the Baltic, cruising the islands of Sweden and Finland as far as Russia. I returned, via Estonia and the east of Sweden, to Holland.
