One of the members of the Iberianature forum is a web site wizard and as the signatures of Jill, Roxanne and Caesar are now carrying the link I guess the Yacht Mollymawk website is well and truly launched...

if you haven't already found it take a look... The crew descriptions are a sneaky peek into what makes them tick...

Well done Caesar! :)

If anyone out there in iberianature forum land is wanting a web site, Caesars Grunt is the guy to talk to....

Thank-you, Clive ! ;D

I was actually planning to remain undercover, but then Caesar went ahead and plastered the link all over the place.

Thank-you for that, Clive.
Roxanne has also been scribbling away - and doodling too - with the following result:

She is now working on her long awaited article about spiders.

Ahoy Mollymawkers!

Have only been able to spend 10 minutes on your site but I'm blown out of the sea.  Will be coming aboard again.  My niece and nephew in Denver Colorado are home taught by their mother while their father is a pilot  and they just fly off to have practical lessons anywhere they are studying.  They sure are bright and way ahead of their years in terms of intellect. A quality I observe in your children  Jill. Congratulations to you all.

The Mollymawker's have made landfall!

Quote
The cliffs of Lanzarote towered above us, a sheer brown wall several thousand feet high. Its top was hidden in a snarl of grey cloud. I was motoring along just 200 yards from the foot of the cliff, and yet the waves were four feet high. Four foot waves, from a fetch of ony 200 yards! The williwaws screamed through the rigging, like ecstatic demons who have found their prey. The anemometer was reading 75 knots.

Check out the latest absolutely terrifying instalment in.... South to the Canaries (there are 4 pages to the story and the page links are at the bottom of each page...)

Yes, the Mollymawks have finally dropped anchor in a place with free wifi....!

Having set off from the Med with the dream of heading directly for Patagonia we had to deal with reality: the kids take their A levels this summer, and so we needed to be somewhere with affordable flights to and from the motherland.

While we are here, Roxanne has been doing her best to find flora and fauna lurking on the mountain sides, in the sea, and even on Gran Canaria's utterly ruined south coast, and if she can find the time (between stalking crabs and measuring her new brood of hand-reared baby slugs) she will be posting awkward questions about their identity.

(P.S. That wasn't the scariest bit, Clive; the scariest bit was the incident with the net...)

What fantastic reading, Jill.  You make it all come alive so much that I almost wish that I could have been out there with you, even though it was obviously scary !!   :clapping:
