First sailing weekend with our yacht

Time to introduce the boys to our new purchase and our future home for potentially upto two years! Let’s hope this weekend goes well….

Let’s sail to Saint Denis d’Oléron

The new crew loved choosing their berths and scouting for dolphins on the trip (albeit none seen). The beach at St.Denis was a great hit with the boys and the lovely sea food restaurants delicious for dinner.

It’s force not-a-lot (light winds) and the sun is shining, perfect to work out how it all works!

Back to La Rochelle, perfect marina in the old harbour, very near some stunning ice cream parlours for our 5 year olds eyes!

Good news is that the main (sail) didn’t get stuck, nothing leaked, but the gas (for cooker) is seized, the fridge has a mind of its own and one toilet simply doesn’t work. All sortable, added to the rather long list. But we have happy crew! Success.
