yachting utopia

Our summer cruise last year was both a yachting utopia and a baptism of fire. We had bought our Sadler 29 at the start of the season and spent every evening and weekend bringing her back from boatyard ornament to seagoing vessel. There had been time for a couple of weekends afloat, but the first time Pasque’s bows met the English Channel was on departure day. We were content to treat the first week as a shakedown, but by the end of four weeks away we’d been shaken up and thoroughly shaken down. In the process we’d gained confidence in our boat’s abilities, as well as our own, and loved every minute of the adventure.Among the challenges was an anchor chain that parted in the middle on the River Dart,…

In Ireland, the volunteer Civil Defence already uses drones to assist the emergency services (RNLI/Nathan Williams)UK search and rescue drone trial under wayThe use of drones to help in search and rescue operations around the UK is being trialled.The year-long study is taking place off the coast of Essex and will involve the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), the RNLI and Essex Police’s Drone Unit.The MCA has already stressed that drones will not replace coastguard helicopters, rescue teams, the RNLI or independent lifeboats. But, it said it was ‘entirely possible that they [drones] could be an additional tool to use in search and rescue and enhance our existing capabilities.’At the end of the pilot scheme, the impact of the drones on coastal search and rescue activities will be assessed to…

A good mast ladder is invaluable (Graham Snook)Essential kit for ocean passagesReading your article on the ARC (‘Lessons from the ARC’, YM, March 2019) made me think of some more essential kit for ocean sailing. I have made two return sails across the Atlantic and I would certainly recommend taking a wetsuit or two, a couple of hacksaws and a good mast ladder.On one voyage, I spent a good two hours cutting a piece of fishing net from the propeller mid ocean; only a hacksaw made any impression on the net and it destroyed the rope cutter.Replacing a halyard shackle with a sea running, causing you to smash against the mast requires a very safe way of going up, hence a good mast ladder is essential.I am surprised at boats…

anchoring on the menu

It might sound funny but for all the hundreds of thousands of miles sailed prior to our current trip I hadn’t really anchored. Cruisers often laugh at my earnest quizzing but I’ve never been shy about putting my hand up and asking questions, as that’s how you learn. I love anchoring because it maintains the sense of independence that a free spirit craves. It keeps you away from bugs, and being head to the wind promotes the flow of a cool breeze through the boat. The shower becomes a refreshing swim and, of course, it saves a fortune.Since there are innumerable weather conditions and sea beds, there is no one way to anchor. This calls for a menu of options and the more I cruise, the bigger my menu becomes.…

time’s tides respect no men

Invariably at tide time I have watched a small tan-sailed boat sail around the Thames Estuary’s first leg in from the North Sea, Sea Reach. For many years I wondered who this intrepid sailor was as the little boat could be seen even on days in mid-winter when most craft were laid up.Then, one day, I watched her sail close in to the wharves of Old Leigh, the Domesday Book fishing village which is my home. Through the binoculars I read her name, Whimbrel, and later I got to know her owner, Nick Ardley, who I realised I knew from the pages of YM, where he often writes about his ditch-crawling adventures with his wife Christobel.Then, after a long period, I realised the boat was missing. No more at tide…
