Helping a friend

01 June 2010 | Lagos
Sailing is such a small world, we bumped into David from Tessa Bear who we met when we were berthed next to him in Cascais for a week in 2008. Steve helped him sail the boat back to the marina as his wife is not over keen on sailing and says she only likes the “après-sail”. Luckily it was a calm day so Steve was not really needed but you never know what the weather or your boat will do when it is required to go into a travel hoist.

Kaivalya sometimes kicks to port when reversing but just to keep you on your toes not every time. The day we were lifted we arrived at the entrance to the harbour on time and the hoist was in position so we thought they were ready for us. Steve prefers to go in stern first so he lined her up and did a perfect reverse manoeuvre right across the harbour to the lift. Kaivalya behaved impeccably but as we drew nearer I pointed out that the driver was not in the lift at all so we had to abort and try again when he had climbed up into the cab. After that Kaivalya would not cooperate and after another few attempts we ended up with a guy in an inflatable bumping against her to get her in.
