Currently the team at NavigFrance are about thirty boats ahead of us in the getting ready for winter stakes. They’d probably be further ahead too if another ten of them weren’t out on hire.
We thought perhaps by hiding among the hire boats someone would mistake us for one of their’s and we’d get accidentally cleaned and detailed before they realised their mistake. Since it’s Friday afternoon and they’ve gone home for the weekend and we’re still waiting almost pitifully in the queue, we’ll probably have to face up to the notion that we were possibly being a bit optimistic.
We have days to go yet before we need to panic, and look at the weather! There’s a book to read and a bed to read it on and a heater to keep us happy, so there’s no need to press any buttons marked “urgent” just yet.
