We are still getting back into sailing since having the year off following Karen’s operation for cancer so we are taking every opportunity to get (weather permitting).
So, we knew we had about 3½ hours before the weather changed but time for a quick sail ‘out and back’ which includes a lock out and in which gives more practice too.
As we left someone had a good fire going so two minutes on the i-pod and we were sailing to smoke on the water.
Any excuse to get the sails out and aired. Looking good and the reefing all working again now too.
Pictures show the weather building nicely, perhaps we should have come back in on a three hour window as it picked up to 25knots+ as we came back into the lock! Need to find somewhere warm and away from the Irish sea.
