Leaving on the Lady Irene

Everything seems to take longer at sea. We waited what seemed like an age for a favourable tide and weather, but eventually a fully laden Lady Irene arrived at Shivering Sands yesterday and we managed to get everything stowed safely aboard. Practicalities such as sweeping floors, sorting out kit and food, setting up the web cam and wind turbine will now take a day to sort out.

I am looking forward to setting up my tiny Rutland wind turbine (90kw), so close to its larger brothers on the Kentish Flats three miles away to the south east - a regiment of giant turbines made by Elsam Engineering (280,000,000 kw)
