Boosh! A huge wave over our bow! | Setting off to sail around the world | Thrown off our boat! #1

Join us, Iain and Kate and Intrepid Bear, a 40ft sailboat as we sail away from long term home marina in Poole in the U.K. to begin our adventure sailing around the world.

We say goodbye to Poole and begin on our first leg to Portland enjoying some smooth sailing until we hit a tidal race and take a green wave over the bow! We are lifted out in Portland and begin some underwater boat jobs including fitting a feathering propeller.

As liveaboards we are woken one morning by the marina staff moving our boat as we lay in bed! We then find ourselves told off by the night watchman when he discovers us onboard and have to move off and into bunk beds on Iain’s dad’s fisheries inspection boat moored in the marina.

We finally relaunch and head out to anchor ready for an early departure across Lyme Bay and are bid an emotional farewell by Iain’s dad on his bagpipes!
