Elektra had been in the water since the end of March but we had only used her seasonal mooring for 4 days due to easterly winds. We had been away for a few days but needed to get back in order to get her onto her gale proof mooring before the next blow. The easterly lasted until the end of Monday and it was Thursday before l had time to move her out onto her seasonal mooring again.
With rain and south westerly strong winds forecasted for the following week Elektra would be safer on her seasonal mooring. We could have gone sailing over the weekend but still forecasted cold weather so we thought we might just day sail on Saturday and get home by the wood burner in the evening.
