  2. Hello chaps; Nice pictures and stories have been following your progress. We have a mob of children in roughly the same proportions and will be heading off cruising this summer from the UK, so I read your contributions will great interest. I cannot but help look at the pictures and think “oooh, they have a hard dink and a RIB, maybe we need a RIB” or “Solar, more solar, I need more solar” etc. Looks like you are having fun and we wish you well. We will be on darkhorse-schooner.blogspot.com or Dark Horse Schooner Facebook, when we get going. But Interweb at 20 bucks an hour I don’t suppose you will be looking much.

    Cheers

  3. Happy (late) birthday Max I would have made an elastic tender for your sailboat but I lack the dexterity. Best wishes to all John
