Achilles voyages

Red Marlin 4:28pm, 8 October 2010
After hearing about William Garniers voyage across the Atlantic last Saturday and Chris, exploits I am wondering if anyone knows of other Achilles stories. I know Chris took Achilles Neuf and Achillea/Swansea Bay on long trips and Songeur must have got to New Zealand somehow. We keep hearing about "this class of boat has made many long distance cruises". Anybody heard any more??

I'll be getting hold of the log book for Songeur in the next couple of weeks, so after I've time to read through I'll post the intersting bits.
By the look of some of the hire line cracks in the gell coat around the bulkhead and on both side of the bow she has taken a pounding, probably the southern ocean!

Looks like Spearhead/Spring Run and Red Marlin have crossed tracks many times. Both spent time in the areas of Oban/Spain/Greece. I really should write up what Red Marlin has done

Yes, that would be really interesting! A job for the long winter evenings, perhaps?

Thanks for putting up Spearhead's links - very interesting, and will keep me going for a while!
