About Lady Cindy

Lady Cindy lifted for anti fouling

Lady Cindy is a 1965 Camper Nicolson 32 mk 5. A long deep keeled yacht with 3 tonnes of lead to keep her upright in the worst of conditions. She was originally bought new by a syndicate of 4 people (hence Cindy in the name) and has been based in the Portsmouth area all her life. I bought her as a well maintained but dated boat in 2020 and have upgraded her to be an ocean going liveaboard boat.

  • Portimao and farewell Nelly

    After Christmas we left Sines and headed to Portimao. Good winds down to Sagres died completely after we turned the former so anchored overnight. After starting the engine the overheat alarm went off so we drifted into anchor. That night I replaced the water pump impellor and we were good to go. The next day …
