Welcome to my blog about Live Magic, a Vivacity 20 yacht based on the south coast of England. Here I will update on trips, maintenance and any projects being undertaken.

Last week

Last week I sailed to the Isle of Man, and yesterday travelled 110NM from Peel to Scotland. None of this was on Magic, I'm only writing it here because someone on a forum used this blog as an example of my sailing experience, assuming that Magic was all I had sailed on and apparently 150 miles in a week in a Vivacity 20 makes me a poor sailor. With a bit of luck, said moron will realise that this blog is about the boat and not the sailor with this post and in future the blog can go back to just Magic related stuff :) The TT was awesome too by the way!
Tracks from the sailing

 The run in to Peel (5 hours with the Spinnaker up, 10kt max TTW)
 Loch Ryan, 5.30am
 Sulby Straight, accellerating so hard the front wheel is up at 180mph

  1. Was just thinking the other day I hadn't seen anything on your blog for a while... now we know why! :o)

    1. Lol yes I've been a busy boy. A week in Gib before that too!

  2. Boats and motorbikes, not sure it gets any better :) As for the detractors.. Who cares what they have to say.
    Keep it up old boy :0))

    1. Oh I certainly don't care what he says, it's just nice to demonstrate that they are wallies occasionally!

      You're right though, this trip was about as good as it gets, and the weather on the island could not have been better for the racing.
