Wednesday 17 August
I was left alone to have a quiet day in the sultry heat of summer in London, while the crew went to visit people who can’t visit us. However, I was prevented from being lonely by the second mate’s brother, who was happy to have some time to himself before heading off on his own arrangements. I had more first-time visitors in the evening, and I think they liked me. I know the lovely lady was pleasantly surprised to find me bigger, prettier (obviously) and less wobbly than the last boat the Mate took her on, and her husband sounded like he’d be up for some sailing fun with us! It must have been a special occasion, as the fairy lights finally came out of their box and were wound around my cockpit, looking very festive.
