It's 2017 and we are both reasonably well, no recent hospital visits so we have been getting ready for the summer.
It is time to leave Emsworth. We have had a tremendous winter in Emsworth. The marina has been great and I have spent many afternoons and evenings playing table tennis in the community centre. Thanks to all the organisers and players who all work hard to make it a success, especially Brian who spends lots of time supporting the centre.
The plan for the summer is to sail to
Gdansk in . This will be by sailing
along the South coast to Poland Dover then along the
coast of France, Belgium, Holland
and Germany before going
through the into the Baltic. Keil Canal
But first we have to dry Ti Gitu out and clean the bottom checking all the anodes and things we can't see.
Most of the other maintenance has been done including managing to pour a load of dirty engine oil over the cabin floor whilst changing it. It took ages to clean it all up. Will I ever learn???
