28th June 2013This weekend: Woolfest!

This weekend I am looking forward to getting a bit woolly-headed in the Western Lake District. Every year dozens of stallholders come to Cockermouth to show off their woolly wares and have a good yarn at Woolfest (sorry).

Along with the proud industrial heritage of the Western Lake District comes the strong tradition of people getting behind their local rugby league team.

6th June 2013Special guest blog: Wandering into Whitehaven by Charlie Brown

Sailing across the Solway Firth from Kirkcudbright Bay to Whitehaven the West Cumbrian Fells rise in the background. Whitehaven, in the Western Lake District, is to be our new home port. We are excited and looking forward to being in a place from where we can explore the cruising grounds of the Irish Sea. Where else can a cruising yachtsman be that offers the opportunity to visit four countries and an independent island?
