Waterspouts and a Dragging Anchor | ⛵ Sailing Britaly ⛵ Ep. 7
Holy. That friends. In. This episode of sailing bitterly we continue, sailing along, the coast of Liguria, whilst. Anchored we see water spouts, and a dragging anchor and. Crease. Talks about evening -, cutting. Rope and storylines. Neatly in a cockpit Locker. We. Continue, where we left off last time sailing. Towards, rap-a-lot. Maybe. Not. We've. Just hoped. To with the boat so. It's. The test that we're doing basically it's it's a really useful technique for lots of different reasons if you want to make, some food. If. You need a break for whatever reason, perhaps your your new baby needs, some attention and, you both need to be dealing with that rather than being. In charge of the boat so, probably. Most of you know this already but if you don't for the kind of newcomers, to sailing I'm pretty much when you come myself too so I'm not exactly the best instructor, but we've, managed to do this so basically you you. Turn you tack the boat but. You leave, the head sail in its original position so you don't change that to the new tack you even where it is and then. There's a little bit of tweaking to do to. Get things balanced nicely, then. You eventually end up with the tiller hard, over to one side and, the. Boat sits like this it. Kind of Wiggles its way into. And, away from the wind and you, generally travel. Sideways. Or slowly forwards, you just kind of track. Sideways, through the water not very very quickly so, again it settles down the movement on the boat. Everything's. Nice and calm and, nobody. Needs to be in control of the sails or the tiller so it frees everybody up to do whatever you want to do so it's great. Increase. Who are supposed, to share a banana the last banana oh. Yes. Each so. This is well I have. Some. Other nothing, in any case we have other pros why, it's funny because. Sorry. Tommy no yeah that reminds me at the time about ten. Years ago when. We were eating a cherry baked well then. If you know what they are but if not google, it if you're really interested anyway. There was a cherry on top we. Were in Greece okay, we were in Greece apparently, and yeah. I was we're eating that toe baked well and, Ross said oh we were kind of sharing it and Ross seller had put the cherry down. Because. I thought she didn't want it I just picked it up foot in my mouth and then Sean oh no, my, cherry and. Then basically that was ten years ago and she never lets me forget that so this is another cherry moment. With. Bad weather forecasts we wanted to find ourselves a nice secure, Anchorage, and from, the nautical chart of hallo looked like the perfect place, there. Was plenty of room to anchor and that was protection, from waves of all directions, however. Once we got in through the breakwater and had a good look around it. Was evident that the area, that we wanted to anchor in was actually full of boats, on mooring boys so, there was no room for a swank of that there. Was only one thing for it turn. Around and go, and find ourselves another, anchorage. It. Was a similar story in the next two bays, they. Would have made good Anchorage's, but they were full of more invoice. Fortunately. Santa, Margarita has, a very large Bay and even. Though there is a Boyd off area for swimmers a furry. Pontoon, and quite. A large marina. There. Is still plenty of room left for boats to anchor. Yeah. That's properly dug in this time first time, and. Us there's a bit of dodgy weather forecast if. We wanted to be sure about. Here, for. Kid is, the, cortical. See. This, is our a quick lunch that, I've just made as it's, a quarter to four and, so it's a bit late. It's, very easy recipe. Yeah. As you know I three. Quarters of banana during the journey here it, goes forever banana and we've got that Mapple whole ice bleach, so. Yeah this is avocado. Basically. You. Can't really see but basically it's avocados, olive, oil. Some. Salt and some chili, powder. Lemon. Juice two slices and it's yummy did quick and quite, nutritionally. That's. Just just mine and they're also even, tastier, if. You have a lit a few learn add a little bit teak. Makes. It taste nicer I was actually saying, they usually we, put some. Okay. Now we're gonna eat before, you make all. My lunch fall into the seats. You. Good. Morning, breeze. Yeah. Bro. Leave up. Where. What's. Happening then darling. It's. Like to. Be a bit starving, soon. We've. Been in, the, boat. We're. Not going ashore at the moment exists a bit too rough for us to be comfortable. To wear to leave it. Looks as though. There's. So. We're just hanging round on the boat, waiting. For that to pass the. Sailboat, can see just in a distance, they. Were anchored here with us last night. They. Were over. Just. There. Between those sea boats and a. Little while ago. They left us. Out to sea and. Now coming back so we're guessing that they're probably gonna lianca. Again, and. They probably weren't enjoying the conditions up.
Our. Friends over there have. Just. Set their anchor. Back. On it check it was set and it dragged so. I'm presuming okay, let's review. Before. It's actually hit over. In that direction hasn't, come here however winter. Started gusting to about 30 knots. Ah I could, yet. They're dragging, towards the beach if. You have fingers crossed for me. Ladies. Just jumping in coconut, see, how they gets on this time. You. This. Isn't going to be easy to film it is one and moving boats however in, the, distance there Center. Screen long, way away there's. A water spout. Just. Maybe I'll set the screen there, hopefully. You can see that way, off in the distance. There's. A mountain. Actually, there's another one just to the left. Where. Their land meets the sea. You. Know what if you like to sail, next. To one or in one that might not be so cool but from a nice distance, like this, interesting. Statement. Oh. Good. Morning. How. Are you today. Good. And what, you're looking forward to. Going. Ashore, we're. Gonna. Be able to go show today so. Looking forward to that coffee, on now and, then. Shortly. We'll get our little tender out. Right. Then let's get this tinder out. It's. Time for us to have a shower and, before we do that I'm going to have a quick bath in the sea. So. They don't where we are. We've. Got lots of privacy you can do this out swing. Platform in this case a bit. More people around so we're gonna lock up the towels up and then basically you. Just use, very. Little water, and. Have a shower room in the cockpit I forgot, to mention you can use biodegradable, soap doing this then you're not hurting, the environment around you. We. Found this vendor in the sea a few months ago and its. Really useful it's good for the tender. The. The rope on it that was a little bit short so I'm just gonna put a new rope on that now and I just thought I'd show you something while I'm doing that I'll. Show you how I cut the rope and also. Line. If you want to be really, particular. About how you name things but and one. Thing I do is. Inside. The locker here I've. Got some sticks of wood some. Battens which run across, sideways and then all I do is I tie, the, rope on like that for. Line and, then it's very easily accessible another. Thing I do is I've measured this in the past it's 35 meters and I've just got a bit of tape on there that says 35, meters on it so, I know exactly how much rope I've got there without having to count it out again next time and, I'm cutting up a couple of meters so I've measured it 1. 2. Meters plus 2 meters and, then I'm gonna cut it where I was using a hot. Knife, which. Is just a, blow torch a handy tool to have on board anyway. Lots. Of different reasons an, old mine. Nice, and hot without saying fire to the boat. And, then, you can just cut straight through the rope and. The. Hot knife. Seals. It at the same time. Today. Done and then when I put this back in the locker, it's, got 35 beaters written on it and I know next time exactly how much rope I've got and I can just continue to do that anyway something, simple but might, be handy for somebody. I've. Been traveling a few days now on this tank and you can see we've. Not used particularly. Very much, however. As we're going ashore we're, gonna take the. Jerrican. With us. There's. An emergency. Underway. At the moment inside, the boat Rossella. Has lost the back of one of her earrings so it might have been me that lost it alright as I was blaming me for it because I took. A glasses case out, before and some beers dropped out see. How it's probably me anyway so we're, frantically, searching, for the back of an earring in the boat anyway so, we're gonna be taking the jellyfish or just thought I'd show you there's, that little repair I made, it on the start, of the trip and it's held out really well so that's a useful thing to. Know if you ever get a little. Hole in your water. Jerrycan. So. Looking forward to getting ashore, be. Leaving shortly. Quite. Exciting, place. For first-time. I. Think. I got at, least half of that in there anyway. We. Are doing a different meal for today it's our past 11. Ashore. So. We're. Just doing a big, big bowl wait. Mosley. Crunching, muesli Greek. Yogurt melon. And. How. A college grad, C cream. I'm. Gonna put the cream on because we're selling always exaggerates and puts too much. Delicious. Season. That's. A definitely yes. Got to. Join. Us next time as we explore Santa Margherita and then continue, our journey along the coast of Italy.
