As in the heading there is always something that life throws at you during day to day life.
Regardless whether it be work or play there is something that will test your mettle and I had such a day last Friday. After having a fantastic week and in particular a very good Friday I arrived at the marina to ‘relax’ for a couple of hours before heading out to the First Friday event which is hosted by Ma2 and is held at the Lemon Tree in Poulton.
I can never really think of what to ‘blog’ about so I might a s well mention where and what I’m up to so far.
This year has started extremely well with quite a few bookings already made for various sailing activities. I’m particularly pleased that the 7 day cruise from Athens is now confirmed and will be going ahead and will take place between the 21st-28th March.
I thought I may as well make the first (of many) postings this year about the itinerary for the first half of the year.
One of the main appeals about sailing for me is the fact you can have complete escapism from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
In these days of ipods, ipads, iphones and a plethora of other modern devices it’s a real return to ‘The Good Old Days’ where when we are under sail we are only allowed to go as fast as Mother Nature allows. It also gives us quality time with people without interruption where we have the luxury of time to actually converse human to human.
I have put together a provisional list of sailings which include places like Dublin and the Isle of Man. I have also put dates together which will enable guests to tie in a sailing trip with, for example, The TT Races in June. I also have a 7 day cruise around Tuscany in March which without wishing to sound like I’m exaggerating can be a real sense of adventure as we visit Napoleon’s birthplace and stomping grounds of Corsica and Elba.
I’m definitely going to start getting into the habit of writing a regular blog. In the meantime here is the video that was very kindly done for us by Noel from www.c22media.co.uk and I must say I am impressed with the result. Obviously the quality of the video has been somewhat enhanced by my exceptionally good looks !!!!!!!!!
I keep trying to get myself into the habit of using this Blog page on a regular basis. In particular that the website is now updated thanks to the fantastic work by Chris & Dan from Rethink Design in Thornton (thanks a £20 note coming my way for the mention).
