Fine weather but still no sail

I was planning to spend two days on the boat the past weekend but a friend’s birthday party lured me away, at least for the Saturday. I was torn as the weather was absolutely amazing and I was very keen to do some sailing. Anyway, I had a nice time at the party and ended up going the following day, on Sunday. I arrived quite late but I managed to do some jobs including patching the mainsail with some repair cloth and a generous amount of 3M 5200, following advice that I read on a website. By the time I left, around 11pm, the glue was still quite sticky so I left the mainsail partially rolled but covered it under a tarpaulin.. Hopefully it will be OK. I did a couple more jobs including some fibreglass reinforcing of the chainplate knee that I had repaired.

My mooring contract is running out on May 31 and I’m not sure exactly what to do. I’m probably not going to sign another annual contract as I’m not sure exactly what I’ll do with the boat and how long I want to keep it at North Fambridge.

The coming weekend is the bank holiday weekend but I’ll have to go to a meeting on the bank holiday. Luckily, I’m allowed to take it on another day. Anyway, I’m going to the boat and planning to do some sailing this time, although the weather forecast predicts rain.
