Swedes, Sails and Thanks
26 May 2019 | Gun Wharf Portsmouth
Frank Hatfull | Bank Holiday
Yesterday we left home at 05.30 from in our new Swedish Volvo to avoid the Bank Holiday traffic.
We arrived at 08.30 at Gun Wharf Marina in Portsmouth to meet our dear Swedish friend Peter and his crew on S/Y Ellen a Swedish registered and built Arcona.
Ellen had just arrived from Antigua on a large cargo vessel with many other yachts also being transported back to Europe.
Peter & Jackline had very kindly stored our huge genaker and code zero sails and brought back to England for us.
They are light wind sails which we don’t use in The Caribbean because there is plenty of wind most of the time.
So we would like to say a huge Thank You to Ellen and Owners!
We left Portsmouth at just after midday and had a horrid trip back with long delays due to traffic.
However the new Volvo performed well and was very comfortable.
