I am a transplant from England, moving to Vancouver when I was 23 with vague dreams to be a pilot. After a couple of years I moved to Ottawa for 5 years, before returning to the coast and ending up in Victoria. The longer I stayed in Victoria, the more people I met who had made the jump to living on the water. This blog is about my attempts to join them.

I bought Gudgeon (then Wind Chime) in Dec 2013, moved on in June 2014, and have steadily been upgrading and improving her. My thoughts have started to turn to cruising around the world, but I have a lot of refitting and learning to do before then!

So it’s now the start of 2018, and I plan to set off on an around the world trip starting May 2018. Yikes, eh?


Update May 2017 – A guy came and made a video about me as part of a series of living in small spaces. Here it is!
