VI Mid-Island Presentation Jan 18 - Northern and Southern Europe

Join Kevin and his son Richard as they set sail in May 2017 from Orust, Sweden on their 40’ Halberg Rassy sloop Ocean Dream, heading for the Mediterranean. Crossing the Baltic, the North Sea, the English Channel, the Bay of Biscay, before heading through the Strait of Gibraltar, they experienced varied weather but found many nice warm pubs along the way! They changed crew a few times, with stops in the UK, Portugal, Spain, Sardinia, Italy, finishing in Prevesa, (Ionion) Greece in November.

Join Kevin and his son Richard as they set sail in May 2017 from Orust, Sweden on their 40’ Halberg Rassy sloop Ocean Dream, heading for the Mediterranean.  Crossing the Baltic, the North Sea, the English Channel, the Bay of Biscay, before heading through the Strait of Gibraltar, they experienced varied weather but found many nice warm pubs along the way!  They changed crew a few times, with stops in the UK, Portugal, Spain, Sardinia, Italy, finishing in Prevesa, (Ionion) Greece in November.
