No worries – I’ve still got my certificates so when I get a chance to sail I’m up for it.
Getting a crew together at short notice isn’t as easy as it used to be when press-ganging was in fashion but Jack the Lad here looks fit and able.
I found him halway up a coconut tree on a deserted island so climbing the rigging on this old tub should be no problem at all.
I will try my scowl – that usually get’s em aloft —
Oops – doesn’t seem to have worked on Jack —
I suppose I could get him to clear that rubbish off the table and get some dinner going —
while I go up there and look for the sea —
I don’t remember having this many ropes on my Wayfarer dinghy when I passed my sailing test on Loch Earn —
No worries – I reckon we will be ok once we are out at sea ——
But there’s not even a stray puff of wind to get us going —
So it was a matter of waiting for the tide to turn then Jolly Jack Tar and mesel brought her down river on the ebb —
and before we knew it —-
we had wind in our sails and were set fair for open water 🙂
