Nancy Blackett

On the way from Ling’s Meadow to J’s mothers we called in at Woolverstone Marina to see if the Nancy Blackett was home. She was, and the Skipper and Mate who had just arrived kindly took the children aboard and showed them around. Picking up on our children’s enthusiasm they then decided the depth finder should be checked.

Next they decided the sails needed checking. We took some very happy children home that night (and then joined the Nancy Blackett Trust).

Other stuff

Sailing is being the main event here this summer. We are down at the sailing club 3 times most weeks – Wednesday pm for club night and Saturday and Sunday afternoons for Bee, Mip and JJ’s groups. Matt has now done his level 2,  JJ has just moved up from his Optimist to a Topper, and Bear has just started in an Optimist. Bee and Mip are on a week’s course this week. In the picture below, from left to right, Bee in a Topper, Matt and Bear in a Heron, Mip in a Topper and JJ in an Oppy.

 The older 3 have been beginning french using Rosetta Stone.

The littlest is very insistent on doing a violin practice alongside the others. Which is really very cute! (at least to look at, perhaps not to listen to !)
