Sailing Around Britain

IMG_3102My name is Brian Munro,and for a long time now, I have harboured ambitions of an extended sailing trip. This trip had to be more than just a year bumming around on boats. It needed a purpose, a goal, something to achieve! To this end, I decided that a circumnavigation of Britain would be appropriate.

I might add, that this is not just for my personal enjoyment. I am looking to raise as much money and awareness as I can for OUCH (UK). My partner suffers from this horrible illness, which is not really widely known about.

Unfortunately my very understanding partner cannot take off the same amount of time and consequently the trip will be largely on my own. Although I am sure she and others will join me in the sunnier, prettier parts!

It would be great if people wanted to keep track of what I’m up to.  If you do, there are a number of ways depending on your level of interest!

If you want the ‘hot off the press’ updates then please do the appropriate thing in the ‘Subscribe to Blog via Email’ bit at the top. You can unsubscribe at any time, once you’re bored of my ramblings!

For those of you with a limited attention span, quick updates will be posted to Twitter. Click the ‘Follow @BrianMunro button and receive the abbreviated blogs.

If you’re really keen, then press the Login button at the top and register. You’ll get email updates of my blog and access to other pages, including a facility to book some time on board, should you want to join me for a leg or two and also a map showing exactly where I am in real time.

So here it is – my website which will hopefully track the planning and work required up to the trip and my blog of the trip itself.

I guess we start here……
