My latest find is The Knitting Sailor which has to win the prize for the most original name for a sailing blog. As far as I can tell the blog is written by a lady who lives in the north-east of England and who writes about... well knitting and sailing.
You don't have to read the knitting posts... unless you are into knitting too. But her sailing posts are priceless. I think my favorite one so far (it's a relatively new blog) is IN WHICH I AM VERY NEARLY SWEPT AWAY in which our heroine attends a very serious-sounding Instructors Conference - "it may horrify you to find out I am actually an assistant instructor."
The highlight of the day was some sessions on the water which the knitting sailor approached with enthusiasm even though she says, "I have never sailed on the sea, believing it to be a big scary wobbly thing." (She is right. It is.)
It was blowing Force 5-6 and most of the very serious Instructor people chose not to go sailing, but our intrepid knitting sailor and a couple of others went out in Toppers. Needless to say things did not go well, leading to a capsize from which she could not recover. And then things got worse. Eventually she, with four other people, ended up on a patrol boat on which the motor would not start, as it was being swept out to sea.
I think her satellite picture says it all...
I am looking forward to reading more sailing adventures from The Knitting Sailor. Check her out.
