Well, after an enormous amount of discussion we have alighted on a name. The new boat is to be called 'Breeze'. Not the most imaginative name, we accept, but we always had in mind use on the radio and what effect the name might have on a future owner. We rather liked 'Premier Crew' - wine buffs among you will appreciate that, but that got marked down for it's radio friendliness - or lack of it. 'Rum Line' (one for the navigators) was top of the charts for a while but we could see a lifetime of mis-spellings.
We are Jo and Trevor and after eighteen months of searching for a boat to replace Starquest we have, at last, found a worthy successor. She's a Bavaria Cruiser 40 - a design from the pen of Farr Yacht Design and BMW. Yes, that BMW - the car makers. Now what, you might be asking, do BMW know about boats? Probably not a lot but they have brought their design flair to the boat and the combination of BMW and Farr has produced a very smart, good sailing boat at a price that does not quite make the eyes water.
