Lady Cindy


Hi, I am originally from the South Coast of England but have spent most of my life away from my home town of Southampton. I love to travel and see natural places but hate the busy tourist spots – which is strange because I spent 5 years running a seaside convenience store and Post Office. I am currently living onboard a 32 foot Nicholson 32 Sail boat preparing to sail around the world. I am blogging every few days and eventually will add things such as live and recorded video via my YouTube channel. You can also Track Me here.

  • Bye bye Southampton
    After two days resupplying and meeting my mum, stepdad and uncle, I cast of from the marina late morning and made my slow way down the Solent. Winds were light to non existent but I had plenty of time so resisted the urge to turn on the engine. Tacking back and forth across a busy …
