Did the Orcas get Webby?

Seems to be a dangerous place, Galicia. Covid, boat-eating orcas - do we need a socially distanced wake?

How will Webby cope?

Eire is still subjecting UK arrivals to 14 days quarantine. Does that mean Webby gets incarcerated for a fortnight every time he stops on his way to the sun?

Re: Horse to Water

My sympathy lies with the poor soul - forced to endure the ravages of the voracious culicoides impunctatus 'cos his local hostelry won't let him inside and about to be descended on by bus loads of Covid infested fellow countrymen (his not mine) keen to spend money at the bottom of his island. It wou...

Horse to Water

There is a forumite who I would like to help but my offers seem to get lost in the ether. He has problems with a gearbox - I have such a gearbox, no longer useful to me, he's welcome to it but that's where it ended. I have 2 rubber-ducked ST2000+s - he has one with a problem - I offered him a diagno...

Re: How to get launched?

The mental calm that comes from just a short sail is such a relief. If you can get out, do it.

Why were your dinghy oars so dirty?

Re: How to get launched?

Boat is now on Ashton mooring. Shuttled car and bike to avoid public transport, used Avon to get ashore. Good news is I can still get on and off the boat into dinghy, outboard works, and the bad side is the burgeoning ecosystem developing on my mooring junk has been given its marching orders. Quite ...

Re: How to get launched?

I have difficulty in seeing the difference in a local twisting their ankle and someone from 60 miles away doing it. Similarly my place of residence has no effect on my idiocies on the boat. Neither breach Nicola's crowds in beauty spots warning. Anyhoo the diesel leak I fixed in the shed is now wors...

Re: How to get launched?

I'm sorry - the weather is about to revert to the usual pish. It's all my fault. Marisca is once again afloat! JWD banned me from the launch area, something Dom has been trying to do to me for years - I reckon he really needs my helpful input(!), the mast is up and the rigging has commenced. The dec...

I was self isolating mentally and physically, I thought it was a control board you were wanting.

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

I can't remember the exact words but the message I took, probably because it was what I wanted it to be, was that travel was allowed but congregating at beauty spots was not. She was advocating common sense with stay at home as the default, social distancing if not. I naturally took the message that...

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

Sense and clarity from Nicola - it looks good for next Thursday. Commonsense is what she wants and most sailors up here have it.

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

"Golf, canoeing, hiking, outdoor swimming, angling" all within 5 miles of home!!!!!! Who, the hell, are the demographic they're aiming at? Hiking is defined as "the activity of going for long walks, especially across country" - needs to be modified to include going round in circl...
