The video round up – sailing from Southampton to Porvoa de Varzim

We have longer blogs to follow shortly, but for now, here’s my brother Max’s video with his experiences of sailing to Portugal from the UK. For those who can’t view it on the website, here’s the link to the familysailing video on Youtube
