Calm Before Storm

With no sailing in prospect for the coming week we decided to take Tramontana out to sea by way of making the most of the last fair weather day. As we motored about the flat waters Guy recalled his teenage adventures dinghy racing in Holyhead harbour. He had been a master tactician, winning many races by working out how the wind would bounce off the harbour wall, or stealing the breeze from competitor's sails, eventually writing a book on the subject. Another of Guy's talents is 'Masterchef'; he cooked a sumptuous evening meal of Green Curry, eaten on deck back in Holyhead as the sun went down.
