ABOUT TO SET SAIL
Well who would of thought that when I was bored one day in Canada surfing the net and looking at the Ex Midnight Sun website that 5 months later I would have been selected to take part in the first leg and today I am preparing Adventure for a 4 day training exercise.
With a crew of 14 we spent all day Sat shopping and stowing equipment ready to set sail and today we are about to leave rainy Gosport and head off towards FASTNET to put into practice all the training we have done so far and probably find some more rain.
I have not found out yet why I was told to bring a pair of shorts with me; I think I am working off the wrong loading list.
Well must go now we are about to cast off.
