To the high seads, to homeward


Dear all,

so whilst the good ship winny has over the last coupple of years been slowly recovering from her dromattic demasting we have been considering where we would go next, to Hifa and the holy land or to homeward. the energys which had so effotlessly alingned and made the outward trip possible now seemed to be less easerly gathered until the onward option began to look like a furios and speedy journey to the holy land and back, not quite in the spirit of things. and on chritmass day this year Captin Garry anounced that we would be bringing the boat back home.

a failed mission? the few months in which we had spent sailing towards Hifa, cut short in the bay of biscay, had been so utterly full of glory, full of beauty, full of high adventure,extatic song, of friends met, of wonderment… we wollowed in paradice and blessings. to not reach the holy land is a bummer and a blow to the pride but in those days 2 years ago whilst we sailed down the british isles and out to sea we hit perfection so many times that in some ways to not reach Hifa was minor.

and now! in 2 days! an intrepid krew: Garry the Skipper, Salty Vic, Tim the Dancer, Tree House Oran, Oshan ‘danger’ Mahony, and myself, will set sail again to recross the bay of biscay and head not to the holy land in hifa but to the holy land in cork!

then winny will sail the west cost of irelalnd seeking music wonderment and adventure and we need krew to do it! that meens you! so if you are a musician, a mistic, a mad one, a mariner, or other wise, then please get in touch and help us to get the good ship back home!!


below is the itinerary, email to get onboard!


Masses of love,

    Hooray for the Whinny! If you get blown off course and round Cape Horn we will be there waiting with charangas and nose flutes!

    Much love

    Nick and Holly

  4. May your voyage toward home be safe and sure! I should love to join for a watch or two, maybe, if that would be possible…?

  5. Looking forwards to following your next caper! Good luck and enjoy. Fair winds,
    Rob and the dilstonites 🙂
