About us

“Life is short – go simple, go slow, and most important, go now.”

These blog pages form a slowly developing diary written by Malcolm & Catriona (Kate)me, Malcolm, and my wife, Catriona (Kate). Like many others we took early retirement from our jobs to realise a shared vision… to go sailing! This was not a new thing for us for over many years we had taken pleasure from living on boats over weekends and holidays, spending as much time as we could sailing coastal waters around Britain and Europe. Our experiences on the various different boats gave us the right set of skills and we both share a love of the sea too, an essential requirement.

After setting up home in a remote part of Scotland our lives have now begun to take a rather different course, although we still remain true to many of the principles we set out with. We are also still moved to write about what we are doing and anyone is welcome to drop in from time to time. We hope you find these pages of interest.
