Follow the attempt at UK circumnavigation in a Shipmate....

On the 19th May 2003 I set off from Amble on the NE coast, in Rainbow, to join other Shipmates at the International Festival of the Sea in Edinburgh.

Afterwards, I left via the then newly re-opened Forth & Clyde canal, continuing round the coast in a circumnavigation - see the UK map for the proposed/actual route

Each night I uploaded the day's progress to the web from my onboard laptop/mobile -- the archive follows

Shipmates are tremendous pocket cruising yachts, just 16' 3" (4.95 mtrs) long -- see the rest of the Owners' Assoc site for more details of this superb little boat
