Although things have been mostly quiet at the boat shed, there has been some activity at the dock: Arnt & Valerie have been busy working on Anja, and they’re getting close to raising sails! Tom is making great progress on Ern’s cabin top replacement. And Dale S. has brought his sweet little SCAMP down to the dock.
Arnt & Valerie enlisted the help of Tom and his son Arnt to bring the mast down the ramp and into place on Anja. After getting my camera positioned, I pitched in as well. Since then, Arnt has been busy getting all the rigging ready, and is getting a bit more sail area added to the mainsail. Anja is looking gorgeous!!
Since the boat launch ramps are closed, Dale S. has arranged to keep his SCAMP Luna at Heritage Harbour. Arnt & I helped him launch her from the beach.
He’s now keeping her at the end of the dock beside Ragna, and taking her out regularly to enjoy the fine weather we’ve been having! Yesterday he and I crossed paths out on English Bay – always a pleasure to sail in good company! The Oarlock & Sail boats have been getting out quite a lot lately as well, which is great to see!
And finally, Rob had an article published recently in a magazine over on Vancouver Island, describing Ern and Odin’s journey around Vancouver Island a few years ago (part 1 of 4). It’s always fascinating reliving that adventure!
