sailing close hauled

I am getting to love this estaury. The windy days are great. I use the small trisail I had made from Jill’s dad’s squib mainsail. She romps along through the smooth water. Lovely.

No fisher ever made will match Katie L – she is peerless.

 

This is about Sailing around Britain.

    HI Dylan. Great that you are enjoying your local sailing, and interesting stuff about electric marine motors and eBikes. But do I detect a radical shift away from the future plans with the Fisher down graded to just fisher?

      thoughts of Fishers and scotland continue to invade my waking hours. The other bits are just welcome distractions from the main pre-occupation. There is one in the yard in Waldringfield with an unfitted engine – it is owned by two blokes who are supposed to be repairing it together…. but one has gone awol while the other is getting fed up with doing the repairs solo. I am watching carefully.

      I have also heard of one unloved one in Kip marina and another in the west country so my boat tentacles are feeling around the UK looking for the right boat.

      However, in the meantime I am following the excellent advice from my old dad……. count your blessings.

      Mine are legion.

      Brilliant boat, lovely river, warm summer.

      Boredom is creeping in at the edges but winter sailing around here is marvelous and challenging.

    Looks a lot to what I made from an old Laser sail for my dinghy! Works great, especially when I sail it solo in strong winds
