I love my new pink shirt

Yep, Brill time seem to be had by all!!!
The Ocean Youth Sailing Trust team from Belfast did a sterling job and we were on board Lord Rank today meeting some of the Team who work with youngsters to get them to experience working together under sail!!!

Fiona was delighted to meet some peeps from Donaghadee.

Yesterday we took Gerry (Director of Trust NI) and Ash out RIBbing and photographing boats. Then delivered them to Cowes while Enda the Chairman was making his way from Prague to the shebeen then to Cowes on board Zebedee.

Photos will follow. When we get some energy back

We had a little gathering this side too with Fiona and Pete 7, Cookee, Mark Halliday, Mark In., Antoinette and Martin and Enda dipping in and out!

Brilly weekend with brilly peeps. The shebeen was lit up last night

Very impressed with the kiddos from Dublin learning the ropes and the NI crew of Lord Rank.

Loadsa stories from the visitors, songs from Fi and details of Cookee's new leisure RIB.
And some rubbish pontoon work by me as I discover I don't like cable steering

Some big waves out there...you'd swear Enda had crossed the Atlantic again as he pulled into Portsmouth...

Ribald will explain by pm why we never made it to Starbucks but one of your crew may have tried to nick Enda as he stormed Pompey in Zebedee (From the West of Ireland...he ain't used to speed limits...)

Hey Guys!!
Now im still here on kathleens sofa in pj's and bedsocks and am just wrecked.So I grabbed the laptop off Kathleen and thought I would just tell you how grateful and happy I am that you all made such an effort to come and do 'stuff' with us and make it a brill time yet again!!I think I may have to house hunt the next time i am over!!It was fantastic to meet those i hadnt yet met and great to see those i had again youre all just so funny and chilled out however youre killing me!!And am so looking forward to meeting those who we didnt manage to get as far as but I promise the next time it will be remedied!!
It was good to meet and thank Cookee in person for all his help for the charity he is one person who realises that just because its not being talked about it doesnt mean that it doesnt still need help. The charity and Kathleen and myself are so very grateful for all your efforts cookee we said whilst on our adventure that if we can tell one person and help them to understand then we would be pleased, now look whats happened!!!

Great to meet Enda at last !!! And Gerry again and all the guys at OYT. We'll catch up in Belfast as promised.

a big giant thank you to my angel and paul for looking after me as usual!!

I will be here all day monday so I will try and catch up with some of those ive missed and then sadly i must depart....so once again thank you everyone K+P Pete7cookeemartinandantomarkhandmarkiendagerryasha ndoceanspearcaptain.

Wee Fi

I don't think it can take any more

The noises coming out from it last night after the pressure exerted showed extreme stress on the structure and frame. There may even be spider cracks

We are considering having it tubed.

In which case it will be the best seat in the house. And will be reserved for storytellers from The Lower Bar
