Sailing days

This year we’ve been converting and extending an old farm building to make a house, which has been a full time job, so with the work running late I didn’t get away for a cruise until the beginning of September, a jaunt across channel for oysters at St Vaast-la-Hougue and back for a south coast potter.

These pictures of swimming in Lulworth Cove and lunch at anchor in Studland Bay after a swim are a reminder of what we missed through our commitment to our Grand Design: one of the warmest cruising summers for years. We’ll do some autumn and maybe winter sailing, and make up for lost time in 2015. The new house does at least have a rowing boat on its pond!

Earlier, Tony managed to make time for a Channel Islands Cruise in August, when the weather was so good they could spend three relaxed nights at Sark.
