About this site

Piers and Lin du Pré bought their new Fleming 55 / 129, Play d'eau, in 2003.

She was berthed in Beaucette Marina, Guernsey in the Channel Islands at N49° 30’.197 W002° 30’.350 until she was sold in October 2021.

This site charts the thrilling adventures they had in her.

Hi Everyone,

After much encouragement, Lin and I have decided to add a section on ‘Cooking onboard‘.

The first recipe will be Parmesan Diamond crisps which are really simple to make and so rewarding.

Over time, we’ll share the good – what we’ve learned works really well; the bad – which encompasses the limitations of a boat’s galley and how we overcome them; and finally the ugly – dedicated to what not to do!

We also intend to add comments on any restaurants we eat at during our cruising adventures.

Have fun, and let us know how you get on.
