Ummm, thanks to those nice people who volunteer to go to sea with me. Stupid buggers!
Whats perhaps more important than some brief sail is the lost
opportunities to meet some forum people when we have been almost side-by-side.
Just a few weeks ago BoatyBoatman (Phil) had just lobbed into St Martin
when I was just lobbing out and we missed a cup 'o tea together.
A few years before I was just 40 nms from Ann and Jim but we couldnt get together... That was in Australia
Noalex in the Med we were 8 miles apart but it was my fault, bad charts
And Barnacle was in the same bloody marina in the Canary Islands but we didnt get together (it was a while ago and we didnt know each other as well).
So they are some of the lost
opportunities... But many times I have bumped into forum people and we always have a bit if fun.
Indeed in the next week or so I am dragging some New York
folks on board to get rid of some shonky rum
... Just gotta sort a date out. So if you are in the area come on and say hi. I garantee you will be safe - we wont leave the mooring
