Ocean Mist Ship's Log

16 th of December 2006 - Winter Maintenance

Crew : Helen and Andy
Destinations : Shotley.
Given the good weather forecast, Andy and Helen decided to go down to the boat for the day to service the winches. Although it started a little damp, the sun soon shone down on us. Unfortunately Andy was not well and was only able to manage 2 winches, however it was a lot less painful this year with the good weather and only two thirds of the work. On the way home we popped into the local vineyard on Shotley peninsula and bought a bottle of mead and English wine for Christmas. We are looking forward to a sail over Christmas, with lovely smooth winches for Andy to use as we tack up the river!
