I’m delighted to be joined by Troy and Marinella who’ve joined as crew until May. Having crew on board means I can get out and sail the boat. Our first trip out was to wave off the World ARC fleet on the first leg of their 18month circumnavigation. Felt a little sad that I wasn’t joining them, perhaps next year. If you fancy an adventure let me know as I’m looking for crew.
Interesting watching the local fishermen. 4 or five in a small boat. When they saw a school of fish 2 would jump in whilst the boat circled letting out the net. They then splashed around to frighten the fish into the net whilst drawing the circle smaller and smaller.
