Time to get back on the water. A break from the land-locked drudgery of the office, soaring petrol prices, the falling property market and reality-bloody-TV. Tomorrow we pack our victuals and drive to Gosport to pick up the 46 footer Lady Nadia (see pic). There’s a few days training and ‘drills’ then we’re over to Cowes for the round-the-island race (which reportedly can take around 12 hours to complete. A gang of chaps (10 in all) many of whom I haven’t met (actually 8 of them) should make for a fun week. We are booking in to several local restaurants along the coast so I’ll be updating here with reports once I’m back ashore.
Avast me hearties, til next time!
