Fortunately getting the boat out of the water in early October meant that I have managed to get most of the winter chores out of the way prior to this grim weather.

She’s back in, looking smart and ready to go so this weekend will hopefully be the first sail of the new year.  Just a short trip around Start bay.

Other important jobs include loading the Christmas booze on board.  I have plenty and may need to make some room in the drinks cabinet.
