This time, Sealand’s David Blizzard describes the challenges of a longer stay in the Principality

“HIGH TIDE AND GREEN GRASS” It’s all very well taking a day trip to Sealand – with prior permission and vetting of course. A relatively simple and brief day-visit enables one to witness a few hours of marine brouhaha, coupled with a brief (yet often mind-boggling) exploration of this unique man-made micro country and to …
