Launch Date

I am assured by the Kilmelford Management that the pack ice will have gone by 12th April so we are back in then.
I think I'll be up there from the Saturday before to get the antifoul done and the sails etc on.
Drink could be taken should anyone else be of a mind.
Regards
Claymore

I won't be up that weekend. Anyway, I hear they haven't got handrails or jackstays on their pontoons. Have one for me anyway.

Nice offer, Claysie, but regrettably unable to join you. We're going into the water two weeks before you, but will be setting off for Rathlin about the 12th, and, after a suitable sojourn there, sailing up past you to Dallens Bay, getting there around Tuesday 18th.

When are you going back south?

I reckon the strong hand of domesticity will be reaching out and dragging me South by the 13th.
Only another 2 weeks though and we're away !

Pre-launch celebrations

I might be about then, but I'm not sure yet.

Not sure about drinking, though - I've had a drink already this year!

Is the sun over the yardarm by 12th April? If it is we may come down for a post-launch dram.
