I have purchased the necessary raw materials for my entry off Preston Market this afternoon. I have also taken time out of my busy schedule of rope laundering this weekend to attend to the challenge.

As well as white Bellis dasies suspended in a tub off the mast as a steamer light. How would the hanging basket cope with the 112.5 degree Arc?

Oh and can ladies start web logs?

Ericaceous compost is for plants of the heather, such as Erica Carnea or Erica Hoey. They both grow wild on the hills and hate alkali conditions. crysthanthemums in pots can usually thrive in John Innes no 3 or anything well rotted. They certainly do not tolerate northern salty sea passages. The on...

By this time my skipper would have me hanging over the side of the halyards trimming the boat, having already had me move the cooker, water bottle and all victuals (including the secret bottle of single malt he doesn't think I know about) . He'd also have me turning my unmentionables into a double-...

Yacht B is likely to be crewed by scurvy-ridden mutinous dogs who are lacking in vitamin C - hence the yellow colour. Any poncy girlies would go 'Left hand down a bit' so avoiding a macho collision regulations situation. At the same time rustling up a healthy fruit salad for the scuvy-ridden crew a...

That looks suspiciously like a Scottish midge - not a flying anteater.

Are there huge mine fields near the Kames Hotel through the Burnt Isles that need detonating? A very drastic way of keeping punters away from the Royal Hotel at Tighnabruich. I logged the number as M104. They have a very aggessive team in the RIB.

Hope you slept well, Ash. It's my considered opinion that if people want to talk about hot air they should register with a web site such as plentyoffish.com where all manner of touchy-feely and half-baked theories are trotted out. In fact the web site caters for single people looking for dates - th...

I heard the Radio 4 report whilst washing up during our recent Grand Cruise Of The Clyde (and Windermere). I seem to remember a letter accompanied by a picture in Practical Boat Owner recently of a container ship clearly with a few containers missing. There seems to be no compuction for the captain...

Oh!! How does a Galley Slave address an Admiral? (curtsies just in case) Well - my Skipper has promised not to use my next creation as a mud anchor. It's likely to be a home-made rhubarb crumble. I have to get back to work now - victuals, livestock and limes to order from tesco online for the Sprin...
