Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall charting our adventures as we sail around the world. The boat is now on the east coast of Australia while we spend a summer back in Britain.

A wild night

Just to report that we survived the gale, though it was a wild night. At 03.00 a really huge gust hit us just as the boat was being pushed by the incoming tide - it hit us from the side and we rolled heavily, with a few loose books hitting the floor with a crash. A very quick wake-up!

The rain has been lashing us for most of the night but our deck-leak fixes seem to have been successful. Hurrah! The wind's still to high to go ashore in the dinghy (which, incidentally is more than half-full of rain water) but the forecast suggests it should abate pretty quickly this afternoon. Might need an afternoon nap after last night!
