A sailing blog about a skipper and his yacht


Dansa anchored at Abermenai

Dansa is a Sadler 25. She was my 1st boat. I bought her in 2002. This was following trips on my friend Don’s boat in Scotland during which I had become enamoured of sailing and decided that having my own boat was the thing to do.

Sailing Dansa set me out on the path of becoming a sailor and I had a number of years exploring the coast of Anglesey, North Wales and the Irish Sea ranging from Lundy & Milford Haven in the up to the Firth of Clyde in the north & Ireland to the west. This included a circumnavigation of Ireland.
