Round Britain 2016 - "And we're off!"

The 4th of July - Independence Day of the United States - and more importantly the start of our epic month-long circumnavigation of the UK! Setting off at midnight this evening, our understandably excited crew are currently making the final preparations before we cast off the lines and begin our very first Round Britain adventure!

Over the next six weeks our crew will undertake five exciting legs, initially sailing Bella from our base in Lymington to Kinsale, Ireland before heading up to Largs Yacht Haven in the Clyde estuary.

After a short stopover in Largs our crew will navigate the Caledonian canals and Loch Ness, completing our third leg in Inverness. Fast forward two days and our fourth leg crew will begin the lengthy descent down to St. Katherines Dock in London via Whitby.

After a short break in our wonderful capital, our crew will embark on the fifth and final leg of our journey and safely return Bella to her home in Lymington and ending what we expect to be a truly memorable trip.

Throughout, the crew onboard will be sharing regular updates on our progress across all five legs right here on the blog, so be sure to check back here every couple of days to see how Bella and the crew are getting on, view all the latest photos and footage plus hear all the latest news direct from the boat!

But anyway, enough from me, we've got a boat to sail! Next stop, Kinsale...
