I prepared some videos and posted these on YouTube. Initially these were for my benefit, to be able view my video and photographic memories on a big TV screen over the winter months and in years to come. I did however post some links to these on Facebook and a couple of web forums and some of you have already followed the link. I am posting the link here as I’m happy to share it with you all, especially those of you who have been so kind to support me and the charity Rainbow Living.

I am pleased to be able to report that the total raised, including Gift Aid, is now over £5,000. Thank you!

You can find all 4 videos on my YouTube channel simply by searching on YouTube for “Voyages of Thalmia”. Take a look particularly at the trip through the Caledonian Canal where I was accompanied (and ably helped!) by Ruth, and the footage of some of the spectacular Western Isles – Muck, Skye, Canna, Jura and Islay with some wonderful anchorages. (Click or tap on an image below for a quick link to YouTube!)

I shall live in these memories for a long time! Thank you for sharing the trip with me.

Having started sailing later in life I have migrated from a 14ft dinghy via a Sadler 26 to a 32ft Westerly Fulmar. I sail mostly single handed in the South West from the Solent to the Scillies or across to the Channel Islands and ajacent French coast. In 2020 I planned to sail mostly single handed around Britain. Due to Covid-19 this was unfortunately not possible. I finally completed that challenge starting in April 2021: finishing in early July. You can check out my journey and experiences, good and not so good in the blog posts below or my YouTube channel - search for “voyages of Thalmia” -

  1. Great video’s and musical accompaniment, though quite surprised there’s no RAP. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing adventure. Almost better than golf !!!
