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 am currently living onboard a 32 foot Nicholson 32 Sail boat sailing around the world.

  • New windlass and across Biscay
    My windlass finally arrived in Brest, and with advice and reassurance from Darren who repairs boats for a living it was installed and is working great. I have anchored twice with it so far with no issues. I decided against crossing Biscay direct from Brest to A Caruna. The frequent storms and being single handed …
