Sunday 6th. September.
Around the middle of August, I got the sails rigged on the yacht and fixed a date for the Launch. High tide on the full moon when there is still a chance of summer weather and Syann would be back from her mother. I then realised how much work would be involved in getting the trailer roadworthy and fitting the boat. Sent out the invites and knuckled down to the detriment of my work. (again)
On the day, I went to fetch Josh while Syann prepared Pizza for 30, John and Frances brought us Champagne from France and we set off for Eling with the boat. Got there slightly late. Lots of friends. It all worked with John skippering. The papperazzi were there and here are some of the photos. Great picnic. Knackered afterwards, there must have been a lot of stress involved in delivering the goods.
