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.

    The seas between Rome and Naples are busy, very busy. The Italians love their motorboats, July and August are probably the not the best times to enjoy remote anchorages. At between 90 and 160 euros per night, marinas are to be avoided too. We have made the most of it though by slowly travelling South.…

  • From Sardinia to Roma via Corsica

    Over the last couple of weeks I have sailed from North Sardinia, to Corsica, across to the Italian mainland of Tuscanny and then South to the Roma region. I am currently anchored at Civitaveccia. After the remote and underdeveloped beauty of Sardinia, Corsica and Orbitello, it was a bit of a shock to arrive in…
