Waiting for the Tide

The weather is stunning. Starquest was lifted out at Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River to have her bottom scrubbed. It was at Bucklers Hard that the majority of the refit was undertaken a couple of years ago and it was good to meet up with some of the people who worked on her, especially Bernie who is, without doubt, one of the most skilled and talented joiners around.

We bumped into Tom Cunliffe on the quay. Tom gave me my first sailing lesson in 1981. Great experience.

Our departure has been delayed as my folks are not too well so we are taking advantage of the extra time to sort out a few things. The electronics have been an issue - nothing seems to have worked as it should 'out of the box'. Greenham-Regis have spent hours trying to coax kit into working and at last I think all's functioning correctly.....but for how long?
