The feature of 2016 has been limited time to get on Sprite, either through other activities taking up my time, or through bad weather occurring when I do have the time.
Several times I've been down to Sprite and it's been blowing quite hard. It's been quite regular this year.
Last weekend was no different. I was busy on the Saturday, had Sunday morning free to get on the boat, but was busy in the afternoon.
Anyway, high tide was just after 8am, so about 8:30 I got down to the boat. After a quick tidy up to pick up the bits in the cabin dislodged by previous blows I made a brew and settled down to savour the peace and quiet on the mooring.
Just one picture through the companionway of the calm, misty morning view:
Cuppa drunk, cabin tidied and cockpit cover tightened up, I locked up and rowed ashore.
