Best testamonial I have ever received:

It comes froma man called DavidF on the Trailer Sailer Forum today

“Man you gotta start from the start!!
Some of us have been following Dylan’s exploits for years now.
I can’t remember which episode it is where he calls the Romans “lazy olive-gobblers” but it’s an absolute classic. And the ones where “Cities of Foam” is the background music stay with me for days.
And the funny part, amongst all that sailing and scenery going on, I’ve learned a lot about England! “

Bless you DavidF – whoever you are

“A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” – Lao Tzu


“To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea… ‘cruising’ it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.”  -Sterling Hayden

Keep Turning Left

I started KeepTurningLeft as a way of scratching an itch. At the age of 52 I thought that I had one more adventure in me.

I have been a small boat sailor all my life – I had three older brothers swho were all sailors so I cannot remember a day when I did not have access to a boat


I realised that a journey around the world was going to be too expensive….in time and money. But a journey around the UK’s 20,000 mile long outragously crinkly coastline could be done one bit at a time – like the Johnny Cash song.

I had £3,000 in the bank so I spent £2,000 on a 50 year old Mirror Offshore and made a start from Bembridge – where I bought the boat.

Six years later I have got as far as the Humber via every river between the two – the Medway, Thames, Crouch, Roach, Blackwater, Colne, Walton Backwaters, Stour, Orwell, Deben, Blythe, Broads, The North Norfolk Estuaries, the Wash, Nene, Wainfleet, the Humber and now the Firth of Forth,



This boat is against the wall in Elie. As you can see it is well fendered. I love the look of it and it would be great to see her under sail and watch how that hull handles the Firth waves.

All the films are here for free. But they have been hideously compressed. They will look much better as downloads or from a DVD – which is how I earn the money to make the films

The films can be downloaded in HD for $4.99 a month. There are three KTL DVD sets  available – £15 or $25 each. Send me your address and I will bung one in the post for you. Pay me once you get it

Please  subscribe to the website or buy the DVDs. The more the project earns the more resources I can throw at making the films.
