Last week we talked about radio mayday calls .
I have done the course so knew enough to switch the set on and even catch a vital weather forecast when Roger was still in the shower.
However he has a life raft on the foredeck which we never discussed even after the fire incident on our second cruise.
This video has a lot of good stuff which hopefully few of us will ever need
Recipes of the sea
Flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, currants, suet, milk and eggs mixed into a batter and steamed in a pudding basin for 2hrs
A1.3 1200 , the height rqd is 1.6 +1.1 = 2.7 , the range is 6m so using the rule of 12 the time is 2 hrs
Q 1.4 What is a rolling hitch used for?
Sat 1st August
Managed to eat an orange for breakfast.
Sea still rough so forced to use the engine.
By mid afternoon the sun came out and the sea calmed so with help from the tide we managed a speed of 7kt s over the last few miles arriving in Den Helder at 6pm after a 36 hr rough trip so quick meal shower and bed .
Den Helder is the base for the much reduced Netherlands navy (might look into why )
The marina is just beside the Fort Harsen on this photo .
