Jalan-Jalan Yacht

A history of Jalan-Jalan
The boat was launched in 2000 and began sailing out of Chichester in 2000. She is an IP380 and is designed as a blue water cruiser. As a result she has a lot of home comforts which is possibly why we both agreed she would meet our specification for our adventure. She is a sturdy craft well able to cope with the Atlantic and the trade winds. She will keep us safe.
Details of the IP380 spec can be found on-line under Island Packet so I won’t elaborate further on the technical elements. As we have loaded her for this trip we have come to the conclusion she is a bit of a tardis. Jo describes her as enchanting. She is sporting a new jib for the trip and hopefully will perform even better than usual. The new ‘toy’ is a cruising chute ( blue and white with a hint of the saltire) ( picture to follow when we get one) and judging from its size in the bag it will give us lots of challenges and lots of fun!
