On Sunday the 10th May the news from Borris was for the lifting of the lockdown from Wednesday 13th for all outside sports as long as social distancing rules were followed. Also we found out later in the week that staying away from home woundnt be allowed which kind of defeats the perpose of a sailing yacht!
We thought we can go sailing at the weekend, I gets the tide tables out at to my dismay I saw Elektra would be neaped until Sunday at the earlest! We carried gear and navigation equipment aboard on Saturday and stowed away with a plan of moving Elektra out to her seasonal mooring on Sundays high water.
On Sunday with food and drink in a bag we headed out to her again but at high water she only had 50mm of water under her keel, so in the end we didnt think it would be wise to try to move her out of the creek. We spent a few hours sitting in the sun instead with our picnic before heading for home again later in the afternoon.
We are hoping to move Elektra to her seasonal swing mooring durring the coming week ready to sail next weekend weather permitting.
