Franks and the boys landed safely and all OK back home. A shipping case
of spare parts has arrived from X-Yachts for Steen to start on next
week. Ian Tom and Jon will join us next weekend and we will get ready
for the trip to Lanzarote. Its around 650nm from Lisbon, looks like the
weather gods on the long term forecast have assumed we liked getting
rained on across Biscay.... There's plenty of time for them to change
their minds and they need to!
Dom (and Morgie & Dee) - thanks for the house watching - Frankie said
the only problem was too many weeds in the drive... Get ur acts together
for the Carribean!
I have a new laptop to join the toughbook stable - the CF-C1 - quite
nice as it is a tablet too. I am hoping a local PC guy will get the old
CF28 up and running - its amazing what you manage to save to the desktop
Carlos from Raymarine came out today and immediately diagnosed a faulty
SmartPilot as the cause of our problems, he can fit tomorrow if the
Volvo man is done in time - yes! You heard it - the VOLVO part has
caught up with me - only 6 weeks later.
Enough - I need to adjust the parasol.
