My Annual Plea, Don't Bash The Bishop As You Go Past!


Recommended Posts

If it is Olive, which I am sure it is, her electric motor is really quite good. On Tuesday we motored across Barton head to wind that was mean 25mph gusting 36. Lunched at Gays followed by a lively reach to the Ant with 3 reefs in. The mast was dropped at Paddy's prior to crossing Barton. The reason being it has been calculated that the mast windage area is about the same as a fully rigged Wayfarer.

I know Olive well, spent much of my formative years aboard, what with the then owner's daughter working for Penthouse and having lots of well formed girly friends! :default_rolleyes: Dear Sally was a legend!

Often wondered where you were educated Peter! I have always thought that the "hands on" approach is better than the more academic! Those years must have been most "Formative"
