good old fashioned seamanship!

Pete is the skipper of Tigress.

With years of naval experience he is an allround sailor of the old school.

Any problem is a challenge to him. Lets hope the trip doesn't challenge him too much.

Annie is a late developer as far as yachting goes.

She is best mate,chief provisioner, cook, log scribe, and in charge of any thing to do with safety! I wonder why?


brother Mike

Mike, brother of Pete, will be joining Tigress in the Canaries.

He will explore the Cape Verdes with us and then venture across the Atlantic to Barbados.

Mike is handy man number one and will be such an amazing addition to the crew team.

Hopefully in the coming months we will be able to add a more nautical photo of Mike!

This photo above depicts our ever present but elusive fourth crew member, Stuart. He is on call day and night, answering our text messages, offering cryptic advice and never-ending encouragement tinged with envy.Whilst we are on passage and out of mobile/internet access Stuart will receive our lat and long information via satellite phone and he will endeavour to produce a map on this website to update our position in the Atlantic.So look out for our progress on the world map page.
