The Russell's have set off on their first cruise of 2018 from their mooring in Milford Haven.
It is the first sail on Ianthe after launch at Milford Haven testing a new sail and setting up the wind vane steering.
They encountered Puffins on their travels......
The anchorage South Haven, Skomer Island.
The fog clearing at Dale, and getting to see the neighbours.
The trip was not without it's troubles however mainly down to Steve's 'senior moments' ! Read on....
Why is it on the first outing I make silly mistakes? Tried putting up the main with a sail tie on. Then when anchoring at Dale I noticed the coloured chain markers didn't seem right. Then I dawned on me I had connected the chain back to front. (I've had the same colour sequence for 15 years).
Don't worry Steve - We've all been there !
More to follow.
