Welcome to this website about all types of holidays on the water – on sea, rivers or lakes, from cruises to sailing or kayaking. I hope the stories inspire your future travels!

I am Yvonne Gordon, a travel writer and experienced sailor.IMG_5714

My travel features have been published in The Irish Times, The Guardian (UK), The San Francisco Chronicle (USA), The Boston Globe (USA), The Irish Mail on Sunday, Metro Herald, The National (UAE), ShermansTravel.com (USA), GreenTraveller.co.uk (UK) and I am contributing editor of Private Islands magazine (USA/CAN). I also write for travel guides such as DK Eyewitness and Explorer Publishing and I co-wrote DK Eyewitness Travel – Back Roads Ireland, published in 2010. I was an award-winner at the Travel Extra Travel Writer of the Year awards 2012.

I have sailed and cruised on all types of boats from dinghies and cruisers to traditional boats and ships, all over the world including Italy, Scotland, France, England, Norway, Ireland, Croatia, Australia and Myanmar (Burma). I have won many sailing competitions, am a holder of the Yachtmaster Coastal Skipper Theory Certificate and am currently preparing for the Yachtmaster Coastal Skipper practical exam at sea.
