Lady Martina resting ashore after her epic cruise


The last few cruises completed in The Netherlands and then the North Sea passage back to England, arriving in Lowestoft. Lady Martina had not been out of the water for three years and so, as we were not planning any cruises for the forthcoming month, we got her lifted out in Lake Lothing for maintenance. You can see  Lady Martina Schedule of Voyages 2019 for day-by-day news of her adventures this year.

Our movements are still visible on the public AIS (Automatic Identification System) site free of charge. For our ever changing location  see Lady Martina's AIS position

May you always have Fair Winds and Favourable Tides ...
