‘Minnow’ is ready for Launching






Victuals and clothing etc are stowed aboard ‘Minnow’. She is ready for a trial sail. All being well, I’m planning on launching her tomorrow, and to test her on Thursday and Friday.

If things are satisfactory, and the weather is suitable, I may have a shot at crossing the Thames this coming weekend. I would then assess the situation for continuing towards Ramsgate and Dover.

If there's doubt about proceeding, I’ll have to work out the best way of getting the boat  home.

That’s my general plan.

I intend posting a daily summary of ‘Minnow’s’ log. Some days I may not have access to the Internet because of poor phone reception.
