Laid Up? Not me. Not yet.

Rowed from Portobello to Fisherrow today. Most of the yachts are out of the water.

Doesn't seem like early November. “There's no wind” someone said when I left the dinghy yard. No problem when you can row. I did a speed trial: rowing steadily gives me c. 3kts. Hard pulling 4 – 4.5kts.


The wind picked up enough to ghost for a while. Touched 2.9 kts before it died again. Lying back, feet up – can't beat it.
