Hurrah for PEGASUS!!
17 June 2010 | Jersey/Greece
So, the house is sold [tick] the notice has been handed in at work [tick tick] and a deposit has been placed on a boat [tick]. I have 9 working days left, Mark has already finished and then kids finish school on 22 July 2010. On 23 July 2010 we 'll be on the ferry to the UK with our bags packed, our house empty and our car boot full to the brim. After a trip down to Greece in May by Mark, we decided to settle on a 39 foot catamaran. The good news is it is on tip top condition. The down side is that it is not available until the end August due to a pre-booked charter. However, our flights are booked for Greece at the end of August and then we can spend a leisurely/frantic [delete as appropriate] 2 months kitting Pegasus out for longer sails (radar, solar panels etc etc)
In a way, it is good that we are not being waved off from the marina in Jersey only for the inevitable return an hour later because something has snapped! Going over to UK first is less permanent and more gradual (for us any way!)
Kids are excited, Mum and Dad are excited - I just can't finish work fast enough so I can concentrate on the trip ahead!
More details once I have finished work!!
