I got a book about the 80+ year old lady that crossed the Atlantic, and a book called the shipping forecast, fab gifts!

It's true about the shipping forecast, we can all remember one or two areas but from where did we learn them? nice little read, even found myself wanting to 'tune in' to the forecast again!

Have not started the Atlantic crossing book yet,  a treat for a stormy day!

Oh Yes and the glow in the dark torch that i was given is great! it works!!

Hoi. Lucy, I'm ahamed of you. Its *always* the helm's fault - we crews are hardly to blame if the ballast aft does't handle the boat correctly to cope with whatever tiny and trivial change in boat or sail trim we might inadvertently cause for some reason that escaped us just afterwards:-)

Hmm. While I agree in principle that the helm's place is in the wrong I am not sure that launching yourself onto the trapeze without checking that it is attached can be considered a tiny and trivial change in the boat trim. It is a double handed boat after all!
