Sailmithril - ocean cruising adventures


Mithril moves on.
Peter and Geraldine have sold Mithril and they wish the new owners well on their adventures.
'Thankyou to everyone who has read our blogs over the years. We enjoyed hearing from you all. Hopefully we have ispired some people to take up the long distance cruising lifestyle.
We have recently purchased a camper van and are now embarking on some land cruising. Our eventual intention is to buy a motor boat for the European canal system.'

Mithril's last voyage with us was a 32,000 mile voyage to Australia and back. We became the first Irish yacht ever to visit the Kerguelen islands in the southern Indian Ocean and after a summer cruising Atlantic Canada we returned to Ireland in 2008 and re-fitted Mithril for sale.
