Well, that was fun!
Louise and I decided to go and make sure that we really all DID like sailing, and took a competant crew course wih Southern Sailing School…. and It was good! 5-days on the
Phoenix of Broadway with Captain Duncan and two other students (John and Ian) we toured the Solent and circumnavigated the Isle of Wight and returned more knowlagable, slightly burnt and with a clearer view on what Befur needed. (comfortable bunks, non-smelly heads, etc.).
It’s clear we have passed the point where “camping is fun” and we need our creature comforts.
I will leave it to Lou to comment more fully…
