Welcome to Sailing Bilbo. A small blog of my sailing adventures and misadventures.
Bilbo is a 1970s 22ft Pandora International that is my starter yacht. Due to the pandemic of 2020, I spent more time and money refitting her than sailing her.
But the sailing has now started to happen and she handles like a racing yacht. She goes in the lightest of winds.
I have some big plans for next year, including a circuit of Ireland sail to help raise funds for Clifden RNLI, whom I owe my life to. I will explain in a later blog entry.
There will also be the odd video blog. But I am not one for talking to a camera.
So welcome to the blog
