Our Journey

Our Journey So Far . . .

We set sail from Le Havre (France) in November 2015 to explore Europe and beyond with the plan to eventually sail our way back home to Australia. 

However Australia is a long way off, we have heaps to see on the way so the more immediate (current) plan is . . . Explore Europe. 

No timeframe, no hurry, no expectations but to enjoy and do so at the mercy of the wind, the tide and the current – not to fight it but to go with it.

So far, over the last two years we have sailed and explored France, the Channel Islands, England (the South West coasts), the Republic of Ireland, Scotland, England (East coast), The Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden & Denmark … want to know more continue below for detail.

One Comment on “Our Journey

  1. Hi Phil and Maree,
    We met at the marina in Flushing. We found your blog on the internet. We can’t find much about Alliage 38 at the computer. Maybe a few another tips? Visit Middelburg by train or bike(7 km). Its much easier. On the Veerse Meer(Lake) you will find the Isle “haringvreter”. There live a lot of deers, wild cows and horses. Also Veere is a nice town. On your way up north you can also visit “Grevelingen Meer”(Lake). A nice lake with Brouwershaven as a smal harbour but there are also a few Isls. More up to the standing mast route Willemstad is a nice town. There is a new harbour outside but you can also enter the old harbour. We also dit once on our trip from Amsterdam down south. Then a last tip when you like to visit Amsterdam. Take the new marina, north on the IJ. Its situated on the old NDSM wharf. There are free ferry’s(with bike) to visit the center( direction Central station).
    We wish you both all the best with that beautyful boat of yours.

    Wout Vreeke and Yvonne de Jonge
