It’s lovely to have a yacht in La Rochelle, but not that handy when you need to fit it out, work on it whilst living and working in the UK. So how to get her home with the minimum time off work? Call in your mates!
Huge thanks to Phil, Nick and Mac (grandad) for helping Russell sail her back to Blighty whilst I was working and looking after the children.
The Bay of Biscay tested stomachs and the choppy seas kept all wrapped up, but they had a good passage and reasonable weather for the end of the season. First night sails and shifts (in pairs) for the additional crew, well done all. Albeit some comment about the chart plotter not having the charts for the English Channel! Oh and that gas bottle was still seized and the toilet is still broken and the fridge not working. Oops, sorry guys! Biscuits anyone? (That’s why we need to get her home to sort!)
Dolphins for company!
Safely home, and a great if exhausting week. Thank you!
