In January we have really started to get ready for our adventure, Judith has stopped working now and we are busy clearing the house and preparing to move on to Island Girl in March. We have still found time to go down to Gosport and we have to take the boat to get the mast removed in preparation for the standing rigging (the wires that hold the mast up ) to be replaced. Before the mast is removed we managed to get out on the Solent and have a sail, the weather was cold and there was a stiff breeze but we had fun and the boat handled well. We had our first boat guests staying overnight and they were able to help with the sailing.
We have also learnt that there are still chores to do when living on a boat
I have also added a small set of pictures so you can get a feel for the boat and see what she is like.
