Here we are in summer 2010, in Ibiza town. Yarona is at anchor further up the coast.
Although we both grew up by the sea on the Fylde Coast (in Fleetwood and Blackpool) we only started sailing in our forties. We have always enjoyed the outdoor life and thought a sailing holiday would make a change from our usual leisure choices of walking or cycling.
We booked a Neilson learn to sail holiday, and progressed from there via several holidays and courses to realising we would like our own yacht.
Our summer sailing plans then became more structured with this aim.
