Pottering around in Poole
We were pottering around Poole harbour a bit more on the weekend, this time up towards Wareham way. We had worked Arctic Rose some way up the Wareham channel, but a falling tide, depths shoaling and a keen desire to avoid going aground meant we did not make...

Christmas/New years
It's been a somewhat busy time, what with one thing or another, since my last post. So I'd like to take this opportunity to say happy new year to everyone. On the boating front, we have not had the time or weather to do much. With glorious weather on the Sa...

Hurst Castle
Last weekend we walked out to Hurst Castle. It was a somewhat strange feeling sitting on Hurst Castle, sheltered from the wind in a warm sunny spot, watching the water from the Solent rushing out through the narrows there. I've been backwards and forwards t...

Staysail now on a roller furler
Hmm, the picture did not quite come out as planned. Still, if you look closely you will see that the big sail that is normally furled up at the very front of Arctic Rose is off, and lying on the deck. The wire where the inner, staysail, goes on behind that ...

Kahu sinks after burning to the waterline at East Cowes
The picture shows some of the equipment brought in to recover Kahu after she caught fire and sunk at East Cowes. The storey is best told here:  http://www.boatinternational.com/2013/11/06/fire-damaged-23m-motor-yacht-kahu-sinks-in-east-cowes-marina-isle-of-...

Tank Museum
Above is a picture of the front of the tank museum at Bovington, which I visited last week. Strangely, Patch did not seem inclined to join me in this particular adventure. I'm not sure why! Anyway, I've seen signs for the tank museum many times when travell...

Fun in the wind
Of course, now we are in Poole we have the chance to explore while the weather is not conducive to sailing. Here are some folks who relish strong winds, taking maximum advantage of the conditions.

Poole
We have now moved on from Lymington to Poole. The marina we are currently at is nestled behind two bridges which open on the half hour, if needs be. Another first for us - getting in position in time for a bridge to open, which needed a little harder of a p...

Living the dream
For the longest time, I've been talking about having a boat, floating about and having a laugh. Up until recently, much of this has been focused on the boating side of things, now it's time to move on. In September, we gave notice at our 'home' marina - whe...

New running rigging
The dirty ropes you can see in the picture is my old running rigging (sheets and halyards), which have been somewhat overdue for replacement, while the nice clean ropes at the top of the picture and in the foreground are the new ropes. It's only when I see ...

Rigging next
All the washing, brushing and painting has now been done and Arctic Rose is now back in her natural element again. This is the time I fear the most - bumping her up alongside and making a mess of the beautiful new finish before we get to enjoy the benefit o...
