OWNERS’ COMMENTS – ‘SPIRIT OF LUNDY’ – ATLANTIC 40 KETCH
The original owners kept the boat on a river mooring in North Devon until 1995, and during their ownership they cruised mainly on the South Coast, with three years in the Mediterranean.
The second owners sailed to the Canaries before going on to the Caribbean. They stayed for four years going through the Islands to Venezuela, Columbia and Panama before returning to Spain. In 2002 they crossed the Atlantic again to Tobago and Trinidad before returning to the Canaries. In November 2005 they crossed to Tobago before returning to the UK. They were caught in Hurricane Delta in 2005 for three days, but were never in trouble, and found ‘Spirit of Lundy’ to be “a very, very safe yacht”.
