This season we saw record highs along the French coast – Hot sundrenched days spent with crew dipping their toes into some of the most famous spots along the Rivera. Sailing, laughter and a few hangover to boot saw yet another busy summer season for the Mischief Crew – thank you all so much for […]
The guy at the wheel; as owner and skipper of Mischief II this is all I do.
From the earliest memories of my dad frantically rowing after me on Lake Windermere as I set off in search of adventure in a wooden tub, right up until writing this, I have loved my time on the water. Various boats and ongoing training over my time have refined that experience and made me realise that I’m surely at my happiest afloat.
I’m drawn to sailing as it remains an adventure; from the shortest hop along the coast to the out of sight of land trip, I feel that it provides a complete disconnect from the hectic pace of life that eats away at many of us. With an ever-growing list of places under the keel, Mischief II is my home and sharing that time with people keeps me passionate about being out on the blue; it truly is addictive.

The days are shortening – the Trevi Fountain was closed so 3 sailors headed north taking in the Tuscan Islands, Corsica and back over to the mainland – great sailing weather saw us have some epic days – the tequila made an appearance and we all agreed with a few unrepeatable ‘Northern’ phrases. Thanks Dad […]
The Pirates came to celebrate a birthday – it all started calmly under the blazing sun but as allegiances were formed the crew became mutinous.
As May turned into June the first intrepid sailors flew into the South of France for some sailing – the water is slowly warming up so only the brave ventured in – Light sailing weather, new anchorages and chaos in the kayak meant tired heads found pillows after relaxing days and strong coffee kick […]
A weekend of sailing, August 2013. A well deserved break for the city slickers saw us enjoying light winds and lots of laughter. Pete did the heavy work and the girls drank…
Elba lies between mainland Italy and Corscia. A well guarded secret that can be easily sailed around in a few days. Blue waters ,old forts, disused mines and italian fare made for a exciting discovery.
Rugged beautiful scenes from towering mountains plunging down into the blue. Countless bays and opportunites to find a corner of beauty hidden by the cliffs and sheltered from the manmade landscapes we find elsewhere.
A bucketlist of glamorous places that we ticked off with relish. These are the playgrounds of the rich and famous and… Mischief, if your looking for something a bit less rustic to tell the inlaws about.
