Sailing again

It was just wonderful to have Maunie back sailing again, in bright sunshine, on Friday. With a super-shiny bottom and very little weight aboard, she felt really fast in the lovely F4 breeze.

Our sail was fairly short as we had to return to the mooring for Rick and his son Joel to come to do some final fairing of the deck. Rick's a perfectionist so was sorting minor details that most people wouldn't even notice.

Down below, things are almost back to normal though we have various items of joinery back in our garage for re-varnishing. As ever, the boat projects will continue to keep us busy...
