Re: The Mallorca Squad

The Good news.
Later this year, I get to sail from Bristol to Sussex........twice!

I will be doing the trip with #3 nephew so will be a good time. Once on the Centaur and once on the Colvic Watson.

The bad news is that both boats will be staying down there. A family relocation is taking place. #3 and me talked earlier in the week, and he broached the subject regarding the boats because our agreement involving money included me using it for the loan. He was quite willing to leave the Centaur here until paid off at end of the year, but........ the amount owed is small, and in my mind it was always his boat.

#3 has been a good kid. Thoughtful, hard working and willing. He passed his final exams and secured a job in Susses, and then his parents and girlfriend all said they would move too and are all buying two properties.

I told him last night that the remaining money owed was a gift and consider it paid off and to get the boat down there when ready. His parents asked me if they could have the Colvic and pay me the cost of the upgrades and fixing I had put into it. As I would only be selling it when a Cat showed up or when I moved to the Med........ it was a no brainer.......

So....... in the next few months I get to make the trip/s.

A few hiccups on the changeover of the clinic, nothing unexpected, more time extending. There is another family episode hanging as a black cloud but that will happen when it happens.

Have a letter here from the broker Ive been dealing with regarding a FP Mahe. Will meet up with him in Spain after the 6th.

Been looking at designing a burgee for the mallorca squad. Might be interesting to have one and can only purchased by others if they have been to Mallorca and meet either Ken, Praire or myself

Back to looking at sore throats.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Woke to a lovely sunny day.

In the Office, decided to go and buy a new camera bag for upcoming trip to Mallorca, so I dont drop stuff at the marina, got ready and then......... the sky went grey...... still kinda sunny but really grey.

Giving up on going and then one of the ladies mentioned it was a partial eclipse...

Interesting....

Thanks for that Praire..

So For the Mallorca team. Will definitely be in Palma 6-20th April. Taking the cameras to fully test on the water and marinas etc. Going to be some sort of fun. SJcams, 3 axis stabilser, Panasonic camera, woo hoo!..... then lots of editing to do in Sony Vegas and Videopad.

If anyone is going to be around, Boatie, Salty Monkey, either leave a PM on here or email me. If not, I will just have to have a great time walking the seafronts.....
