Burgee flown

Postby spuddy » Mon May 13, 2013 8:12 pm

Thye Bluemoment burgee was flown at Pollensa in Mallorca
Image
But that could be anywhere so here's one showing a bit more landscape
Image
After that it was two stops in Menorca. A terminal engine failure west of Corsica
Image
so a stop in Calvi
Image
An outboard got tied to the stern ladder with string and we then made it to Viareggio. Just under 500nM all told and quite a bit of stoicism in a 7 metre boat.

I have no idea Spuddy where you have sailed from. However, excellent wee boat voyaging. I am just reading Roger Taylor's Voyages of a Simple Sailor. He puts it all in perspective, get out and get on with it, make it easy and smaller is easier. Big respect Spuddy.

Top biscuit.

Nice blue skies Spuddy. Are you staying in Tuscany or heading further East?

Viareggio is a nice spot. Should get engine sorted there too, plenty boatyards.

Nice pics.

Ah, a bit more explanation. Not such an epic as some thought. The owner had bought the boat off ebay but knew nowt about sailing; it was in Pollensa, he was in Bologna; Arghiro knows the lad as well. After an appeal for help two of us said we'd have a look. So it was a delivery really from Mallorca to Italy. The credit for the inspired bodging goes to the other volunteer - Bernie B. Thanks for the comments.
