We’ve had a few disasters on board this week, but at least the long list of winter jobs to do has begun, we also cover the last race of the season into Venice lagoon with almost 200 boats on the start-line. So that was spectacular!
We manage a trip out on a classic wooden Venetian boat with JP from Classic Boats Venice which was lovely.
Judy was away from the boat for a while so I took the opportunity to fit a new communications system that gives us Wifi throughout the boat that can get its feed from either the marina Wifi or Mobile broadband. It’s a much more powerful and well build version of the ‘Wirie’ that we previously had which died in the summer. This one is made by Digital Yachts and seems very well built. We will have to wait until we are off-shore to see how well it keeps us connected.
A shout out to Ben from Pro marine store, who packaged up all our various bits including the Digital Yachts gear to send over in one box. Very useful! take a look at his website… http://www.promarinestore.co.uk/
