WEATHERING THE STORM


Outdoor and Apprentice Men have made it home in one piece. They didn’t get as far as the West Coast of Scotland though, but after 3 nights at sea in Force 7 winds were glad to scurry into the welcoming mouth of the River Tyne and have left the boat there to resume the voyage in a few weeks. They were exhausted and it seems very, very hungry as they completely emptied the fridge when they got back, proceeding to eat lunch, dinner then breakfast all in one sitting. Clearly they are to be congratulated on pitting their strength, wits and, in Outdoor Man’s case, experience against the elements and coming through relatively unscathed. Would that we could all weather storms in the same way.
