Ocean Sail

Speedwell of Rhu

Speedwell (our Oyster 435) is now in Andalucia. In May 2017 we moved onboard without any firm plans except to sail south and spend the winter in Southern Spain, which is where we now are. Our plans for the winter are to have a rest from sailing. We have a free swimming pool next door called the Atlantic Ocean and we hope to have a few holidays walking and sightseeing. Next spring we intend to head back northwards in Speedwell and visit some of the places we didn't manage to visit this year.

We've just had Speedwell lifted for routine maintenance. After 8 years with Coppercoat anti-fouling we've updated our record of how our anti-fouling is working.

Speedwell of Rhu is a private sailing yacht, she's not available for chartering, sailing holidays or other commercial work (here's why). This web site contains information about our boat, the voyages that we make in her and some other sailing related articles.
