Katie, Sails At Last.

I've finally got round to sailing Katie.
A weekend meeting at Barton Turf was the impetus to get cracking and build the rig.
Encouraged by Rob Blackburn's success with the roller reefing system borrowed from Matt Leyden's Paradox, I cobbled together one of my own from bits I had accumulated
in the garage and some fancy new PolyTarp, which I think looks rather fetching.

Now there's Tyddewi.

We recently had a long weekend away in Pembrokeshire to celebrate the Tooth Fairy's birthday.

St David's Cathedral, founded by Wales' patron saint nestling in the valley.

We did some walking around the coastal path, the wildflowers were out in force and the weather was fantastic.

The old and new St David's lifeboat stations at St Justinians.
