Welcome to our blog where we will document our travels in “Windependent”. 

We took delivery in June 2015 and sailed down the coast of France, Spain and Portugal to Faro where Windependent spent Christmas.  We left at the end of January and spent March to August based in Valencia allowing us to return to the UK to complete our move to the boat.   We set off again in August spending the rest of the month in the Balearics before heading for Barcelona and then on to the Cote d’Azur and the French Riviera.

From there we’ll follow the coast into Italy and start looking for a winter berth while we visit Brasil.  We plan to spend 2017 in the Mediterranean before heading back out towards Gibraltar, the Canaries and the Atlantic.

The Itinerary pages explain where we are, where we’re going and where we’ve been.  There is a map and calendar to reflect the details on the Route descriptions.

The Visitor’s Book records visits and voyages by our friends and is for them to share their impressions and experiences on board.

The other two pages are pretty self-explanatory!

Although we have accounts on Twitter @windependent1 and on Facebook, I still haven’t figured out what to do with them yet, or how to do it!
