A Teenagers' Cruise Around Britain by Issy Taylor-Jones

The summer of 2020 did not seem like a year to have wild adventures, it was a year of staycations and Covid claps, Captain Tom and his hundred laps.

Wrabness picnics, and weekends in Walton had been a highlight of most school summers for the three of us. But with Issy finishing her A-levels, and Pete and Simon on a year off, there seemed like no better opportunity to grow our sailing experience and build up some cruising miles. A major overhaul and refit completed, we sailed our tiny twenty-two-foot yacht around the UK, including a four-day non-stop passage up the Irish Sea.

No one expected it to be easy, but the early stages of the trip seemed overly plagued with bad weather, and broken kit. With the rough must come the smooth (quite literally!), and none of us forget neon glowing dolphins, jaw dropping Scottish scenery and lazy days lounging in the summer sun with good books and good company.
