Yacht Fiona Tackles Four Canals & Two Ocean Crossings – Europe Cruising the Baltics

Fiona Tackles four Canals and Two Ocean Crossings. This is the video of a cruise made while the book was in preparation, and is not described in the text. We crossed the Atlantic to Scotland, crossed into Denmark and cruised the Baltic. Sailing across the Bay of Biscay Fiona was badly damaged by heavy weather and due to failure of the welds on mounting brackets we were lucky not to lose the bow platform and probably the mast. Emergency repairs were carried out in Portugal.
