About Us

I have been boring everyone for years about the Death Plan. Which is broadly that we all have limited time to do the more adventurous things in life and therefore we need to start now. Not in a few years or next year but now.

So here we are, Caroline and me in the company of Tom and Jamie whenever we can persuade them to come; and also with friends who have joined us for various stages and we hope will continue to sail with us.

We bought Juno in July 2011 and sailed her to Mallorca in the Balearics over the summer. In 2012 we sailed to Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Italy and then West to the Canary Islands before we crossed the Atlantic as part of the ARC. Over the winter we sailed up the Caribbean islands from Grenada to the US Virgin Islands where we loaded Juno on a freighter and she was shipped back to the Med for the Summer of 2013.

In January 2014 we decided that the time had come to spread our wings a little further so we crossed the Atlantic again in November 2014 and in January 2015 we left St Lucia on the World ARC circumnavigation. Our route took us through the Panama Canal to the Galapagos Islands, then through French Polynesia to Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu, finally making landfall on the Queensland coast of Australia in July 2015. 

We shipped Juno back from Australia on a freighter that delivered her back to Palma, Mallorca and after a minor refit over the winter we cruised the Greek Islands for the summer of 2016.

Its over five years now since we bought Juno and after two seasons in the mediterranean, warmer waters are beckoning again so we plan to cross the Atlantic in November 2017 and see where we go from there.

We don't have any long term plans, just to see more of the the world from the cockpit of Juno.
