We've been back in Turkey for 2 weeks now but were busy with guests on board so did not have the chance to post this before now.

We have cleared the trash from 2 bay's since being back and want to share the locations.

After leaving Fethiye towards Gocek where we were to fetch our friends, we motored along the coast looking for a suitable anchorage. We anchored and secured 2 lines ashore on the western shore against a small cliff in the bay of Kucuk Kargi Koyu. It's a lovely anchorage which fe...

As an addition to our top improvements of 2018, we would like to introduce you to "Zebbie" the gangplank.

While we always prefer to be at anchor, there are occasions when we either need to, or want to go in to a harbour or marina. In Greece and Turkey we have found that the harbour walls are often a bit high for us to reverse in towards and be able to use our clip in folding carbon fibre paserelle without danger to the underside of the RIB.

With ferry traffic often creating surge in harbour,...

Following on from our last post on this topic, here is our improvement tip #2 for 2018.

During July, we experienced some VERY hot days along the Turquoise Coast between Gocek and the Kekova Roads in Turkey. The image below taken of the thermometer at the navigation station was average for the some of days last month, with us seeing a top temperature of 41.5° C (that's 106.7° F for you folks in the US).

While we are never shy to start the generator and use the air-conditioning on extremely hot...

We cannot believe that today we have just had the ten thousandth visitor to our website.

It was started from scratch less than 2 years ago with neither of us having any prior experience on how to design, build or maintain a website.

Thank you to everyone who has visited the site. Hopefully you have taken away something of interest and hopefully we can continue to engage you as we "Share the lessons we learn on our journey".

The tag line for our website is "Sharing the lessons we learn on our journey".

Having spent over 3 months onboard last year and over 2 months so far this year, we have learned so much about LADY ROSLYN, what works for us and where we have felt there could be improvements.

We have made a list of a few of the improvements we have made and lessons learned, which we plan to share over the next few posts. Hopefully other Saba 50, as well as Helia and Saona, owners might find some of these ideas us...

Another beautiful day, another beautiful bay.

We anchored in a very beautiful cove last evening very close to last weeks Trash Tuesday bay. Since then we have been south as far as Kekova and are now heading back towards Gocek.

This cove is very close to Cold Water Bay and Gemiler Adasi. At Cold Water Bay (which can be seen in the panorama image) there were probably 12 yachts anchored last evening and at Gemiler a similar number together with a few gulets. In this little spot there were only o...

Our crew claim that the wind gods were smiling on us yesterday after we had done such a good Trash Tuesday clean up. 


Absolutely incredible downwind sailing using our Wingaker -"Lady in Red". This footage shows the true potential of this sail.

A HUGE thank you to Tammy, Jack & Tom Rutherford for helping out this morning to clear the small bay we have been anchored in of all the plastic trash we could find.

This cove is between the Karacaoren and Gemiler Adasi anchorages and is absolutely beautiful. However, with Olu Deniz relatively close by, and lots of day tripper boats around, the cove traps all the trash in the afternoon breeze.

Yesterday, while we were anchoring, we saw 4 turtles in the cove and during the afternoon, had the...

Some days the sailing is so good you just can't stop.

Today was one of those days. We had spent the night in a beautiful bay near Ekincik so that we could make an early morning visit up the Dalyan river delta to see the loggerhead turtles and visit Kaunos and the Lycian rock tombs.

Upon our return we upped anchor, raised the main, unfurled the genoa and set course for Baba Adasi, an anchorage further south along the Lycian coast. The wind angle was perfect at 120 degrees with a wind speed of...
