Crew: Nevil, Rachel, Robert & Luke.
Started off with the intention to sail to Tau but whilst sailing around the back of Lindøya Rachel said she didn’t feel well and went below. After a while with the kids looking after her I decided to head towards Langøy so that we could anchor up and have some lunch. Anchored in a bay north of the jetty – dubious holding since we drifted off at the first attempt although I am not sure we had enough chain out. Once the hook was in firmly we enjoyed lunch and Rachel perked up in the warm sunshine. After lunch we fished for some time, catching four smallish saithe and two larger cod, including a whopper 1.4kg! After clearing the bay we set sail again and reached 6knots in the freshening wind. After dropping the kit off at the mooring the boys motored Marita round to Stavanger Batsenter where she will be receiving her new engine in the next couple of weeks.
