It's been just two years since we completed our transatlantic trip for charity and at last we can show you the final result. This is a picture of the of the well that was built in Malawi, Africa with your funds. YOU BUILT THIS WELL by supporting Sail For Water with your donations, your messages and your encouragement. And because of that, the 166 people of Walimabatha now have access to safe clean water. As you can imagine, we can't thank you enough!

As most of you already know, a lot more has happened during these two years we have spent living by the Med in Barcelona. The most important of those are, of course, the births of our lovely new "crew members", Julia and Nora.

We want to take this opportunity for our whole family to wish you a Happy Holiday, a Happy New Year and to thank you for making our dream for SailForWater come true!  It has been such an amazing experience and we love that we have been able to share it all with you!

Teak seat metal protrusions

All knowing list....I have a new question.My boat is 9 years old now, and the teak seats are beginning to have metal "brads" sticking up out of the teak. My teak has weathered, as I am of the  natural teak camp, not varnishing or oiling heavily. Has anyone else seen this? Did Beneteau use brads of some sort along with the mastic?
