Evening sailing!

Postby JohnBuch » Thu Apr 03, 2008 7:59 pm

Its a wonderful world now the clocks have changed! Had the first evening sail of the year, a modest passage from Largs to Kip. But boy was it good going sailing after work. Fleur trucked along between 5 and 6 knots until the wind dropped three miles from Kip. Great views of Arran and Holy Isle, four porpoises came along for the ride off Skelmorlie. Entered Kip in the gloaming.

Inevitable maintenance list though. Port nav light needs a good slap to start working; unpleasant noise from the stern gland (blackjack) has come back after I 'fixed' it; poor connection on GPS losing satellites. All part of the fun!


Glad I decided to keep her on the Clyde, hopefully lots more evenings to come! :D

I'm dead jealous. Mine keeps wrigling her bottom at me as I pass her on the drive, slack tart that she is. It's time I got her bottom wet again, and I think she agrees.

Cheers Bob.
