Departed Filey anchorage 9.00am on the 16th June. Planned to depart the night before were shelved when it was found the reefing hooks were the wrong way round on the boom, which meant the boom had ot be removed – better to be done at anchorage rather than out at sea!
It was a pleasant sail with West and South West Winds 4 -5. Arrived Blyth at approximately 11.00 pm.
Nice reception at Blyth and met up with Wayne (Jay 9), who had sailed from Grimsby the week before – and caught fire – but safely extinguished it before arrival of the RNLI. Yet another example of no fuse on the starter motor battery – we have ours – just need fitting !
