Hooray, Hooray, it’s a holi, holiday!!!!

Dear Reader, Just a quickie to say we are off on our ‘summer’ hols – bravely battling the coast of Southern England from Poole to Falmouth on a beautiful sailing ship……………. the Amelie Rose – check her out on http://www.topsail-adventures.co.uk/

I had anticipated balmy waters, beautiful sunshine and bracing sea breezes to blow us along – today’s shipping forecast says ‘no’!!!  In fact, it says:

Portland

  • Wind Cyclonic becoming southwest 4 or 5, occasionally 6 at first.
  • Sea State Moderate.
  • Weather Rain or showers, fog patches.
  • Visibility Moderate or good, occasionally very poor.

Plymouth

  • Wind Cyclonic becoming southwest 4 or 5, occasionally 6 at first.
  • Sea State Moderate, occasionally rough at first.
  • Weather Rain or showers, fog patches.
  • Visibility Moderate or good, occasionally very poor.

I don’t like the sound of ‘cyclonic’ very much.  Do you have any scary sailing stories?  When we were boating in Ireland about 15 years ago, my younger son, E fell overboard and we didn’t realise he had gone for quite some time.  Luckily, (and very blessedly) he was wearing his lifejacket and no great harm done – very scary at the time though.  I shall, naturally be wearing my lifejacket at all times too.

Back in a couple of weeks!!!!
