First solo sail

Got out today in a Force 4, and practiced the art of raising the main etc on my own.
Also tried out approaching a buoy with the engine and also reversing. Result is that the neutral button is stuck on the throttle. It made the arrival back at the pontoon quite exciting.

Managed a quick video of the sail - sunshine and a lovely breeze. Great fun.
However that is it for the moment as the weather is closing down for a few days the shipping forecast gave storm force 10! See the Wind guru chart below.

So it is batten down the hatches and find some small jobs to do inside.
