Sitting here holed up in the boat once again as yet more wet weather
soaks this already very soggy country, I thought I would seek out the camaraderie of some fellow salts.
I currently liveaboard
while I've taken myself back to university as a mature student and then I spend the summer cruising and anchoring
around the south west. I'm relatively new to sailing having only truly discovered its charms after an unexpected day excursion on a classic yacht a few years ago. After dabbling in dinghies for a while I bought my own 1930s gaffer in 2012 which I have sailed from the Isle of Wight to Penzance and this year intend to extend my passage
making abilities by heading first to the Scillys and then across to France
. That's as long as her lift
out in march doesn't reveal too much work needing to be done!
Anyway, I hope the sun shines on each of you today, it certainly isn't going to make an appearance here!
