Sunday night update

Just a quick blog from the skipper, Ian, to let you know the girls have all settled in well. Judging by the smiles and laughter they are squealishly excited and happy. The young ladies surprised us by wanting to go to bed early saying, and I quote, “I am tired”. Just after 10 silence reigned and sleep came easily.
Karen, Ian and I discussed what to do to-morrow and decided the best option was to stay in Glasson dock. With sunrise being at 07.33 we think there is a possibility that the lock gate may not open with such an early high tide. That combined with the low neap tide and an unkind forecast leads us to believe that we have made the safe decision. The girls initially had long faces but when we explained why and that their day would be very full with safety briefs, boat familiarisation, a ride and steer of the dinghy and outboard and a bit of mooring practice on Tenacity (only in the marina) the smiles returned and the high pitched raucous hubbub was soon testing the adults ear drums!!
You can look forward to a blog from the girls on Monday night.
Skipper Ian.
