Trio no 450 “Woozle”
Woozle had been in the wars and was in need of some repair. We wanted to take her on holiday with us to Salcombe towards the end of July. I am pleased to say that we managed to repair her just in time, putting back on the water at our sailing club (Ogston) with one day to spare. So we were very happy to see that not only did she float, but that she did not take on any water. There is still a little cosmetic work to do, but at least she’s structurally sound.
We had hoped to meet up with the Trios down in Salcombe for their weekend cruise. Unfortunately, our holiday had been booked long ago and the timings were a little out of sync. Also, we were staying on the east shore near East Portlemouth and they were all staying west of Salcombe. As if all that were not enough the weather (wind) grew stronger and stronger and so sailing was very limited towards the end of the weekend.
The good news is that I hear they had a good time and we managed to take Woozle out to sea and up to Kingsbridge, all later in the week.
Here’s a photo of my mate Rob and my Wife (Mandy) returning from a sail on the Sea, where Mandy saw the biggest Jelly Fish ever; far bigger than a dustbin lid !! Not sure if the dustbin lid is the international standard measurement for jelly fish, but you get the idea.
