2011 voyage around the UK, Norway and French Canals

Hello Friends,

Spring has sprung and preparations for a brand new season of boating have begun! Paul and I have had a great winter in the studio completing post-production on 13 new episodes for season 7 of the Distant Shores TV series. The new shows cover last year's voyage from England to countries on the Baltic Sea. (See below for info on when/where to see them on TV.)

We're just packing our bags to fly back to England for Easter to launch Distant Shores II, our Southerly 49 sailboat. This summer we'll be cruising England's south coast, Ireland, Scotland, Norway, England's east coast, then entering the French Canals in the autumn.

We invite you to watch the Distant Shores website and the new Distant Shores Facebook page for updates on this year's voyage.
