May Weather

May 3, 2015 at 8:01 am

The house is sold, all my possessions are in storage in Bristol, I’ve been to Ireland for a week, then back to Plymouth where I’ve been working on Duet in the yard for a couple of weeks now.

Just dropped the dog off for her summer vacation in Norfolk and I’m back in Plymouth hoping to launch on Tuesday.

Of course, as it’s a bank holiday weekend the weather is atrocious. I slept aboard last night for the first time this year and the rain hammered the deck and the wind shook her on her chocks. But I have a new memory foam mattress, and it was far warmer than the van… Squished in the forepeak with the sail bags.

But by the looks of it I won’t be going far next week… This is WindGuru for Plymouth Sound:

Simon Keeling isn’t optimistic about the next couple of weeks either…

Lots of time for writing blog posts by the looks of it… I’ve got lots to write up though.

More coming soon.
