Granpa & Grandma go sailing

11 August 2012 | Stavanger, Norway
Nevil. NW4, 16°C, mostly clear with scattered cloud.
Start / Finish Time: 14:59 / 19:39
Daily time / distance: 12.7 NM / 4:40
Crew: Nevil, Robert, Luke, Mum & Dad.

I did some jobs on Marita in the morning including buying a new inflatable dinghy, had lunch at home and then brought everybody down for an afternoon sail. Left the harbour and then the boys demonstrated their Competent Crew skills by getting the mainsail up on their own.; Grandpa was very impressed. Motor-sailed until we were through the Lindøy gap then sailed for a while. Mum was very nervous to start with but soon settled down when she realised that Marita is a lot more stable than Morwenna was.

As we approached Langøy we did a circuit through the small islands in the hope of catching fish but we were not successful. Once we anchored up to have a brew and relax in the sunshine Robert & I caught a mixed bag of mackerel, a tiny cod (which we threw back) and a saithe. We used the heads to bait the crab pot which we left behind with the intent on coming back tomorrow.

Since it was quite late we simply motored home.
