Hi Dave Mac,
Thanks for helpful link about tent bridle fixing – UKWA forum is brilliant !!
Regarding last ‘summer’ – confess to taking the ‘soft’ option – day sailing from Mylor harbour. At a price, but worth it – excellent facilities.
10 days June & 12 Sept. inc. Tall Ships.
Another confession – only cooked a handful of main meals thanks to my friends Tony & Jenny being nearby with their 30 footer.
Cheating I know, but rude to refuse hospitality !!
However, spent every night ‘under canvas’ & surprisingly comfortable.
Sailed a variety of boats over the years, but am a Wayfarer ‘liveaboard’ novice – steep learning curve !
My mainly single-handed relatively short trips were aided by ‘big’ slab & genoa reefing from Michael Mac & Rob Helyar – invaluable.
Probably should have replied by private mail so if there’s any one who wants to swop notes then pm me.
