An up and running galley once more!

Galley items are back in their allocated cubby holes, dry store lists are in the making, sole boards are back down, cushions and curtains are seeing the light of day again… all of which mean sailing isn’t far off and, importantly, dinners on deck aren’t either! It is hands down one of the best things about summer sailing- platters and bowls of food making its way along a chain of hands, up the saloon steps and onto a coach roof, wine glasses perched on capping rails, that golden evening light making the whole boat glow. Chattering away under the oil lamp as the gold turns to red, with a blanket over the knees while the the last of the pudding has been tidied up and coffee and whisky have been sufficiently administered. Yes please!
