Slow boat to Chi…
With light airs we knew today was not going to be good for Intrepid. Nevertheless, we let the cruising chute out of its cage. However, it was when a lobster-pot buoy skipped towards us, tapped on the hull, then disappeared we knew we had a problem – we stopped. Down came the chute and main and we considered what to do; slowly the boat swung round, we rolled out some genoa and sailed back along our course and out popped the buoy.
Did we give up? Well nearly.
Our thanks to Chimera for waiting for us to finish.
