Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall charting our adventures as we sail around the world. The boat is now on the east coast of Australia while we spend a summer back in Britain.

Wheretheheckawee? A new way to follow our progress

Things are looking up for a departure this Sunday or Monday - we'll be more certain in a couple of days. When we do start moving again, there's a very good website tracker for which we have signed up,  called YIT (Yachts in Transit).

It displays our position, together with weather report, speed and distance covered and any comments with a nice Google Earth graphic; it looks like this:


When we are on passage we'll update it every morning so that it'll show our track (plus an estimate of our position 24 hours later) and our daily distance covered. Once we are in Fiji it'll give photos of the islands and anchorages that we visit.

The address for the website is http://www.yit.co.nz/yacht/maunieofardwall and there is an option on the home page to 'Subscribe' where you type in your email address, tick the box next to 'Maunie of Ardwall' on the list of boats and press send. You'll get an email back immediately with a link for you to confirm the subscription (it has to be done within the hour) and then you'll receive an email each time we update our position on YIT.

We'll use this in addition to normal updates to this blog and hope that you'll find it useful and interesting!
