Re: Not my business....

When things all went tits up, a few years back, i contemplated giving my craft away to someone who could 1) use it 2)lavish care on her. It turned out to be a legal nightmare, and...

Re: Just delivered a Comet 28 from Treguier to Lisbon

Here I go again! With the sum total of 4 hours sleep, Skipper dragged me to lunch, still feeling the night before and generally knackered with the constant battering and anxiety of the night before. We checked the type serial number and availability of new primary fuel filter and on chandlers asked ...

Re: Just delivered a Comet 28 from Treguier to Lisbon part 2

We settled into a good rhythm on a watch system going and cleared the ras de Seine entrance buoy and basically headed 235 degrees towards Spain, giving us the option of La Corunna or bypassing straight to Camarinaze Marina Spanish town Muros. We motored for approx 10 hours with the main on its first...

Re: Just delivered a Comet 28 from Treguier to Lisbon

Well, the story begins ! I was sat on my venerable, and slowly being bought back up to scratch, Macwester 28 in my home berth at Port du Plaisance Treguier. After finally having enough Gordon`s Britain and moved aboard permanently, when out of the river appears a large blue yacht heading straight ac...

Re: Going down the trousers . . .

Then make sure you call in at Treguier, for a while, i shall still be refitting to go in mid may.
