but the "voyage of the wasps" when I threw the nest in the sea.

Don't need gymnastics this week.
Then the new fridge I bought last year kept an even temperature of 19°C! That problem resolved itself after I'd turned it on and off in desperation many times. Then the car we had hired displayed a warning stating that the particle filter was full and service was necessary (I chose to ignore it, I had enough to think about) The GPS on both of my devices didn't get a fix so I resorted to the old paper charts and my smart phone with google maps (!)
The day after launching we decided to sail non stop from Kilada to Poros. I had sailed this trip on my own the previous year and it had taken 9 hours. This time however because of the wind and current against us it took 12 hours. But we arrived at my reserved buoy in Poros just before sundown so all went well.

I have started rowing the dinghy now, when possible, instead of using the engine, saves petrol and builds up my muscles.
