Sailing up the Stour

18-20: Sailing again at last: the picture is of the sails set to goose-wing up the River Stour with a decent breeze - a bit of reefing - even the tide was with me. I am now anchored off the shore - just out of sight to the left of the picture. Nice views - warm and sunny.

A tiring day - getting out of the marina was harder than usual - the boat was a mess for sailing and took ages to clear up - I needed to get fuel - and managed to spill a lot on the back of the boat - much running about getting the warps sorted out.

Intend a bit more exploration and then going off to the next river - the Walton backwaters.
