June 2015:
Is this Summer?!
Click on Thumbnail
June has started much like May with a severe gale over the night of 1st/2nd. Initially I was land-bound after a minor operation in May so Seatern saw a flurry of modifications!

1st/2nd June

June starts with a storm

Click on Thumbnail On the night of 1st June it peaked at force 9 at the jetty - I'd taken the mizzen off but Seatern would have been better without the boom. I slept on board that night and she was bucking around a bit! It was the first time I'd had the rubber snubbers on the mooring lines - can't say I noticed a difference. The photo is from the morning on the 2nd June; the wind was less but it didn't feel like summer!

Collected trailer
