I had a glorious day launching Highcroft for the first time this season and going for a couple of hours sail in Secret Water territory on the East Coast - Walton-on-the-Naze. It was such a joy to be back on the water. Also nice to get back in the swing of things and for the Morbic 12 to see in a second season.
Nearly ran out of water on the way back and getting the boat out on slimy slipway took nearly as long as the sail!
Anyway - wishing you all a fun season building and sailing FV’s fantastic little ships. Where are you all sailing?
glad you are enjoying being on the water in the warm snap we had - bit of a different prospect in today's weather here in Witney! I hope very much to sail in your company in 2022.
All the Best
I had a great day out in Chichester Harbour with the DCA yesterday.
My mate has ruptured his Achilleas Tendon which has curtailed his sailing for a few weeks but we managed to get him on board and I let him do most of the helming while I relaxed.
There wasn't a huge turnout but it's great to be out there while it's still quiet. In a few months East Head will be very busy.
