Dave, Shelby and Sarah Milner' 40,000 mile voyage on the sailing yacht 'Blue Spurr', a 38 foot Nicholson.

Their 5 year circumnavigation of the world from 1984 to 1989, is written here in a shortened version of some of the adventures that they had. It would need a book to be written to find out about all the sailing, gales, calms and perfect winds. All the friends they made and all the characters they bumped into. All the goodbye's and all the parties when they joined up again in some far flung harbour or anchorage. 


Now retired they live in Scotland, and sail their Elizabethan 30 around the Western Isles.
