Expert advice for Sailing around Britain

18 Jan 2022

With Peter Russell and Lucy Wilson

Peter and Lucy join the BoatLife Live stage at 2 pm on Sunday 20 February to tell us more about this interesting subject as many people turn to UK adventures while international travel is still difficult.

19 year old Peter Russell sailed round Britain with two teenage friends in their tiny 22-foot yacht Muffin during the summer of 2020.  Their trip of a lifetime included a four-day non-stop passage up the Irish Sea, gorgeous Scottish scenery, neon glowing dolphins and lazy days lounging in the sun.  He worked closely with Lucy and the team at nautical publisher Imray to sea-test their charts, books and apps, supplying drone and sea-level photos and gathering information and updates.  In this inspirational illustrated conversation they’ll talk about how to plan your trip, how to use a wide range of data sources to sail safely, and tell you some stories as they go!
