I was organised enough to keep the bit of plastic straw in the cardboard box in beside the tube of blue grease, and use the same one year after year. :wink:

Think that that name is already taken.

I would suggest "Turul"

Congratulations on the new boat.

Re: We've bought another boat

Well done. This must be a win, win all round. A boat is being used as it should, the cadets get some cash, and you get a boat. I couldn't decipher the font used for her name, is it Amy J?

Re: How's your Summer going?

It's been a poor summer, though we have spent a lot of nights on board, but often in our home berth.

We're currently on a short cruise, and have " gone furrin " Currently in Glenarm. Got here via Campbelltown and Rathlin Island.

Toward and Hunter's Quay were a bit lumpy. It was a beat all the way from Tarbert, Loch Fyne despite num...

Re: Cuan sound against the wind?

We went through last summer, a lot less than F5 on the nose, but found the exit lumpy. Vega with 13.5 hp.

Re: SIPR 2017 - 19th May

I haven't been on one either, but I've read a few reports, and your experience sounds about right. Were there also steep waves, a green spinnaker, and alcohol involved? That would clinch it.

Mistral is sold

I'm happy to say that Mistral has a new owner. If you see her, then say "Ciao" Her new owner is an experienced sailor and has worked as an instructor at Glenans Corsica, but this is his first venture into yacht ownership. Mistral is currently on the hard at Largs getting her bottom fettled...

It sounds as the wire has jumped off the sheave, and is jammed along side it.
