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.

Oh, well, the best laid plans..

Hey, ho, another couple of kinks in the weather systems....

This morning dawned calm and sunny, with a fog lifting off the water:



Unfortunately the little ride of high pressure that's moved here means that we'd have absolutely no wind for the next 20 hours and, with a 2m swell left over from the last few days' winds, it'd have meant a rolly ride under engine.

So we scrubbed today's departure and enjoyed the sunshine, getting Maunie properly aired after all the damp conditions, and instead planned to go tomorrow. However, the latest of the oft-changing forecasts now has a front heading our way to give 25 knot winds and rough seas! Aaargh! 

So it now looks as though Monday will be our day... Here's hoping.
