So this Saturday, instead of watching rugby on cold terraces, shopping with the Mrs or skiving down at the pub, we are racing through paradise. Usual stuff that I’m sure you have read on other blogs. Blue waters, rolling waves, perfect winds, stunning fishing blah blah blah.
However, one of those things is not applicable to Chilli Chilli and that is fishing. It would appear that our only two ‘fisherman’ had been blagging each other with their abilities and neither of them know which end to reel in or which end the fish is supposed to bite! They currently have more fishing gear than the Deadliest Catch spread all over the cockpit and have no idea which bits go in the sea! Looks like chicken again tonight!
I will now pass you over to Gorgeous Gorge.
While the dangerous brothers Henza and Heston fish ,I will try briefly to describe life below decks to non sailing
types....down the steps into the saloon....no swing doors and dancing girls there ...ahead of you we have the fore cabin the place where heston sleeps its pointy and like sleeping in a tumble drier worst berth on boat..dont tell him.that.,..
there are 2 stern cabins ...the Swamp ..mole and i..next to the heads....nice , the otherside henzas and charlie...
Charlie finally moved out today...as henzas snoring he describes as Unatural, Timbo has moved in there
Charlie is now in the saloon berth, he did wake up a bit grumpy this morning as its noisy in this area the galley is part of this ,also the nav centre where i am sitting now.
This is our Prison for 16 to 21 days every thing is at an angle, noises coming from everywhere.....wind ,sails ,waves.
We are the servants to Chilli Chilli 24 hours a day..........Bless her she keeps us alive and ensures we have fun as well so its a fair deal...personally i have loved it ...you certainly find out about your fellow man and your own failings.........,sometimes strengths.......not far now ,under a 1000 miles to go !!!!!!!
