Sorry about the delay in posting but could'nt remove Mrs A from the computer yesterday. As you will have gathered from Bogib's post, the three Icelanders and I made it safely back to Poole after another uneventful trip. Bogib took the helm most of the way, allowing me a chance to enjoy the view of the lights of the Solent and Bournemouth/Poole Bay.
I suspect that, after the incident with the near sinking/puncturing of Grimalkin at her mooring in Portsmouth, I am already a nominee in next year's awards for the Purple Helmet prize which I took this year and which already has pride of place on the lounge mantlepiece! Luckily, an inspection of Grimalkin in the daylight on Sunday has revealed no damage and all is well (save for a new bow line being required!).
It was good to see so many familiar faces and a couple of new ones and (as already said but can't be repeated enough) many thanks to Nasher for organising and co-ordinating the event which was thoroughly enjoyable.
