Come on board and take part in our adventures while exploring the world at the slow pace of a sailing boat. We left in June 2009, heading south to escape the northern winter... to start with. Currently in Algarve/Portugal taking it one day at a time.

Isle of Wight and Portsmouth

01 July 2009
After a really lazy and peaceful morning we moved into a Marina in Gosport, next to Portsmouth.

My old friend Dave, who sailed with me in the Baltic sea 2 years ago will come to meet us here together with his girlfriend Jen(-nifer)

An impressive 5 hour drive from the Manchester area where he lives. With him he will also have the extensive first aid and medical kit that he has put together for Röde Orm and us. Dave has just finished his medical school exam and is now a Doctor.

When they arrived around 7 PM we went 'downtown' and had dinner at a local Pub.

Needless to say, we had to sample a 'good old' Yorkshire Pudding. It does admittingly not look all that appealing on the picture, but tasted great. Very rich and a huge portion though. The Pudding consists of what reminds of a Swedish pancake in the bottom in the shape of a bowl. Inside the bowl a large chunk of mashed potatoes and French fries(!) with gravy, and on top of it 3 sausages at least partially made of liver. All in all rich oldfashioned farmer food. We sampled a few different Ales and Cider with it. After this dinner reunion we could barely make it back to the boat where we all 'dropped dead' and slept like logs
