Start Of Our Sailing Season

On Board motoring down the river Medina to our swing mooring.

 Here is our little yacht being lifted back onto the river by the crane. It is always a worrying moment to see her up in the air like this, but she is soon safely back in the water and ready to be off and away to new adventures!

I do a few rows of knitting on board while we wait for the crane to make it's way along the harbour wall, lifting all the boats back in the water in turn. The ensign flag of our little yacht inspires the colour choice for the yarn. Skipper will be flying our flag proudly on the stern of our little yacht.
It is such an exciting time as our sailing season starts and we were blessed with a sunny Spring day for the occasion too. It was a bit of a rush to get her ready on time this year as the crane was booked to the favourable tides at the end of March but at least we are all set to sail now over the Easter holidays if the weather permits.
