Well I think we all know what happened the first day out on the sailboat this Saturday but moving on from that I am pleased to say the rest of my long weekend was a lot better.Getting here was fun as the campervan blew the fuel pump and then turbo during the week so plans changed somewhat!
Anyway the lunch stop and return sail from Salhouse was very good. A cider each in the New Inn in Horning and catch up with the gentleman who works there we met in March when hiring a cruiser from Barnes brinkcraft.Hmmmm.
Yesterday was very still so we took it as an opportunity to try the Seabee engine I acquired from a work colleague what had it in his shed for years.The last time it ran was in the nineties and after fettling at home I am pleased to say she runs like a good one. A bit difficult to start but she took us from Horning to Ranworth and back on about a litre of two stroke unleaded.After a Cider and a Pizza at the Maltsters we returned to Grebe Island where we sat and watched the world go by in the little riverside garden and mooring whilst enjoying the Sun.
Today was the Biggie with a four hour beat up wind to Lion Inn at Thurne dyke.A very nice Burger, chips and salad with mustard dressing and yes you've guessed it another cider.It was nice to see and chat to familiar face that we knew from visiting The White horse in Neatishead too. Neither lasted long as after the sail we were very hungry. Then the return journey in varying winds within our limits. Some bits upwind and others down as we meandered along the river. The ferry Inn area was funneling the wind quite a bit so things got a bit hairy then at Grebe Island it died and we were lucky to get in the dyke on our second try after a cruiser too busy looking at the houses failed to spot my instructions to come round the back carried on his bank hugging line so had to go around. No big problem today but when I got back was tired.Boat on trailer ready to pack clothes in the morning for the trip home.
We can't wait to be back in June to learn our non sailing Son a few things before our July return with his twin Brother (who sails at Uni)and younger sister for our Eastwood whelpton sailboat for a week. Myself and one of my Son's learnt to sail with them last year and am so glad we did.It has given us a new outlook to the river after years of rumbling engines on cruisers.Life's good at the mo. Smile
