Lady Hamilton has spent the winter in Concarneau, Southern Britanny, having travelled last season down from Whitby, their home port.

This year, Joanna and Malcolm will travel back up the French coast, spending time visiting those ports and islands they were unable to include last season.

They intend to reach the Netherlands by late Autumn where the boat will be stored for the Winter.

They have previously circumnavigated Britain via the Caledonian Canal in 2010 & then sailed around Scotland in 2014, using the Forth and Clyde canal, spending several weeks in the Outer Hebrides.

Lady Hamilton is  a 30 foot yacht based on the Robert Clark “Verl 900” and is a home finished boat out of professional mouldings  It has sailed out of Whitby since 1996, the year the vessel was launched.
