Afloat again

10th April 2017

Today was launch day for a new season. This year is a new departure for us and rather than launching and recovering after each trip, we have taken a mooring in Gosport to see if we can get more weekend trips. We still plan to travel with the boat too, but our new mooring will give us a chance to explore more of the Solent area.

Last season was distinctly thin, with a lack of tow vehicle, but with our new “bus”, we are back in business!

Today’s launch went really well, with enthusiastic help from Alice, and we had the boat in the water an hour and a half after arriving at the club. We will be needing some new kit, not least an outboard for our dinghy, as the mooring is some way from the slip. 

Tomorrow’s project is to fit the mooring gear to the buoy…
