Sailing around the world (slowly)
Sailing a Sea of Dreams
So what’s this Cygnus III website all about?
Well, in 2010 we decided to sell our Dyson hoover and the house we kept it in to buy a sailing yacht called Cygnus III to live aboard.
We wanted to go sailing into a striking sunset, visit paradise and get free coconuts.
It was all pretty simple really. If we got lost along the way we could just pull in somewhere and ask directions.
What no one told us was how bleeding scary the sea is! There’s, like, rocks and storms and shit!
So these are the tales of our hapless voyage on our sailing yacht Cygnus III and the places and predicaments we have found ourselves in.
Mark Twain once wrote:-
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”.
Then again… He spent his time writing and not sailing boats!
On the Cygnus III website and sailing blog you will find

“Wherever we want to go, we go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and sails; that’s what a ship needs. Not what a ship is. What the Black Pearl really is, is freedom.”
