Sitting by the fire on this bright Christmas Day and dreaming of our first heave to off Swan Point next year. Sjogin waits patiently in the shed for Spring and such work as I can do in the cold weather. Little else to report other than making sketches for the new cockpit and cabin arrangements.
I long for next Christmas when I can hang the wreath on the mast where it belongs and go below for a sizzle.
Julia and I send you and yours the Merriest of Christmas wishes and hopes for a peaceful, healthy and prosperous New Year.
Thanks all for coming along on this wonderful adventure. And a special thanks to Paul Smith, Jeff Reid and the many other folks at Beaton’s who helped bring Sjogin back from her watery grave.
