As you have probably seen from the rest of the site we are Maria and Adam Dunlop. We met in 2004, and were one of the Internet dating success stories.  We were married in 2010 on a fantastic day.

We only took up sailing in 2009 whilst looking for an interest we could learn together. We both immediately fell in love with sailing and especially that moment when you switch the engine off, the sails take over and you glide gracefully through the water.

One of our inspirations has been the vast number of wonderful people we have met.

The above two reasons are more than enough excuse to take up sailing.

Please feel free to contact us either by the comments sections on the site or direct to our email mariadz@mariadz.com alternatively find us on Facebook (Maria is down as Maria Smallwood).

We hope you enjoy our blog, that it isn’t too boring and occasionally informative. We will try to explain the thought processes that lead to our decisions, let’s hope they are not a cautionary tale.
