Sailing single-handed on a Bavaria 40 sailboat in the Atlantic. Based in La Rochelle, France. Sold the Bavaria in early 2021, and am now sailing a Bongo 8.70 meter (28 foot) made in France in 2009 (much smaller and faster than the Bavaria, but also, much less comfortable). Adventures in the North Atlantic will continue.
Patrick is all about the sailing and nothing else. Well, maybe a word or two about a good Chateau Neuf du Pape! Sometimes it might be nice to see a minute or two at a destination that he visits, but I do love the sailing wisdom he imparts.
Welcome phantom ship mates!
Patrick is out on his own showing that it can be done. he thinks nothing of a massive passage for a trip out that would be more than most peoples miles in a good few years. He offers some instruction without talking down to you but as his channel is about the actual passage there is very minimal maintenance or shots ashore.
I would love to buy him a chateaux nerf de pape if i ever meet him.
