We re-wrote our “to-do” list. In itself, not news of Blog shattering proportions however, it’s a re-write, finally, with a purpose.

We’re going sailing.


Not, definitely-maybe or definitely-if or definitely-but.

We’re definitely going sailing.

Next year. 


Probably January.

Or March.

Nonetheless, we’ve a new, objective oriented to-do list. (Whoops, apologies for work-speak).

I shimmied up the mast, tightened up the VHF aerial which was waggling a bit, gave the BadBoy aerial a hard look. But it still doesn’t work, never has. Put on a new main halyard. Checked the rig. Had a look at the view.

Serious stuff. See. We’re definitely going.

New engine oil, fuel and oil filters. Diesel supply polished and stocking up on passage grub.

Covid is down en route, there’s a vaccine on the horizon, the new Code 0 should arrive soon and having said nine months ago I’d catch up on all my outstanding videos I need a good excuse to continue not getting round to it.

However, basically, I’m done sitting on my ass.
