Easter Shakedown Cruise 2018

Things have been dormant on here over winter.  Finally, I've managed to launch and have some fun, albeit on a cold, damp, and mostly murky few days on and around the Orwell.  Rather than post pictures here, it has all been put in a youtube video.  Here's to great sailing in 2018...!
