Poole Quay Marina, Poole, Dorset

Following Bootlegger's arrival in Poole son Karl and partner Ellie arrived
early evening of the 1st and we had dinner aboard.

The next day ( 2nd June ) was also fine and sunny. Moe's son Seb visited
us and later good friends Lynne and Russell Armstrong from the Isle of Man
who are to crew for me for the 580nm passage to the Isle of Man.

We all had lunch at a nearby Quayside restaurant where we were joined by
Russell’s son Kevin and his wife who later left us along with Karl, Ellie
and Seb. Had dinner later where we were briefly visited by Chris Hill, the
son of another couple of good friends David and Wendy Hill. Chris is
currently working for a yacht company before returning to the IoM in
September to take up accountancy.
