Well – we have completed the main work we needed to do alongside in Dead Fish Alley, namely installing the heating system. It feeds warm air to the saloon, each cabin and the aft heads and wet locker. Just in time for the drop in temperature after our October heat wave – bliss! We also have two more service batteries to store the wind and solar power (total four) and this now feels much more comfortable.
It just remained for us to sail back to Wareham against these strong westerlies. We chose a relative lull on Saturday and had an excellent sail all the way from Portsmouth to Studland, where we had a late lunch amd good nap while waiting for the flood into Poole and then sailed to our anchorage in Southdeep, from where this blog entry is sent. Today it remains to sail up to Wareham and get back to Portsmouth where our car is.
We have Heleen with us, visiting from Amsterdam.
That’s the news for now.
Tony, Ynskje & Heleen
