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.

    Tough few days

    The last few days have been tough on both me and the boat. I want to get on but the weather and strong currents around here mean slow progress. The sail from Guernsey to the French coast went well. It started with good winds which dwindled to nothing and ended in strong winds gusting to …
