Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall. After a six-year adventure sailing from Dartmouth to Australia, we are now back in Britain.

A new perspective on sailing for 2021

We are back on the boat! This is just a quick update to say that we'll be restarting the Maunie blog as we start a summer cruise. Hoping that summer weather will actually turn up for this!

We also have a new toy for some different photos and videos:

We've like the idea of a drone for quite a while but read too many stories of people drowning their expensive toys as they try to land them on a boat. However, we have found a waterproof model called a Swell Pro Spry+ that's even designed to land in the water so we've taken the plunge, so to speak.

Even the controller is waterproof so it should be good for the challenges of life aboard Maunie

Graham's still learning to fly the thing but so far hasn't crashed it into the rigging so we hope to share some nice shots with you.

More to follow....
