We start in catch-up mode because it's 1 May 2013, and we bought the boat on 4 Apr 2012.
The trigger for this blog is our plan to set off in about a week to spend about 10 weeks doing a half-circumnavigation of the UK. To read about this trip, and the preparation, you need to go to the SIRENA IV 2013 blog (click on the text).
If we ever find time we'll create a retrospective blog for 2012 and for SIRENA IV's history (she was known as Petanya before us). Assuming we survive and enjoy the trip in 2013 there will be blogs for following years.
