Route Listing 2017 (Over land, from Carloforte, Sardinia back to the UK)

This year (2017), our drive from the UK to Sailaway in Sardinia saw us taking 8 weeks to cover over 3,200 miles - again a fantastic trip, lots of good memories! The return trip back to the UK will be as fast as possible for a number of reasons. The trip begins with a drive to the north of Sardinia, then a ferry to Toulon (France), then, driving across France to Dunkirk with a further ferry to Dover.
