It's spring so it's raining again and a bit of a blow coming in! Freyja is still in the water bobbing about like a bobbing thing in water but without a mainsail.
We took the mainsail to patch a few holes that had appeared after the wind drew the sail out of the cover in a wee storm. Flogged about about a bit and caused a few thin and very thin bits.

Luckily Admiral Hales had the remnants of an old shredded genoa and since it almost matched the colour of our sail, we used some of it to make mends - or at least Eve did.

Looks lovely now. Just waiting for a nice bit of weather to get the thing back onto Freyja, flapping about properly.

We pootered out in the blow-up to Freyja today to take the big saily thing off. Bit complicated to be honest what with all that string and things. Still, it came off and we stowed it in a sail bag. Obviously

It wasn't a bad day - between the light snow showers. No wind anyway so Eve had cycled into town and then, when back on land and a quick cuppa with Admirable Hales on board Ammonite, she rode home again - via the other side of the island. As she does.
