Anjea is a 41' (12.4m) sailing yacht designed by Van de Stadt and built by Aluminium & Steel Boats, and is my home.

In these pages, you will be able to track Anjea's resurrection from a neglected toy to a well-found sea-going yacht. And then, I hope, you'll be able to follow her explorations across our planet — across oceans, through inland waterways, to famous cities and unnamed atols.

The Slog is where you'll find my occasional diatribes, self-indulgent missives and magnificent prose essays on the meaning of life. Er, well, maybe not the last. Anyway you're welcome to browse and most welcome to comment.  

Stay in touch,
