Looks like it's another soggy and wind swept Sunday out their. Typical  :(( . But knowing my boat it not that rain proof  I suppose I will have to get the brownie points in with SWMBO and spend the day painting the downstairs loo

 ;) I would save them brownie points always handy for the days when you want to slip out for a bit of sailing,nearly May when the real sailing begins,I really looking forward to it as I was not too well last year and missed out a lot,anyway make a good job of the loo and you might get double brownie points!,Ray {-) {-) {-)

Back from the lake.
Great afternoon apart from the wind from the east was a tad chilly.

Its the way things are. Todays weather is fantstic here in Portsmouth so I should be looking forward to sailinv my new Dragonforce 65 tonight but alas the top part of the mast has gone missing so no joy. Wife an mother in law did some tidying up in the junk room and probably threw it away  as there were some old corbon tent poles in the same room (the wifes mother is blind as a bat)

I did ask last night and got told she put 'several' broken poles in the rubbish bags they took down the tip. The tent they chucked out was one that got trashed by high winds at a bike rally 3 years ago. Think I had 2 poles that did not shatter (that's what you get camping in January). Think I was only keeping it to turn into a bike cover. Still, she is giving me the money for the new mast so apart from delaying me there is no harm done.
