Lorraine's Blog on our second sailing week from Mallaig to Badachro via Skye and Harris

The Crew from left to right - Wendy, Katy, Graham, Paul, Caz and John
A few words about our mad crew..................

Wendy was our novice sailor with more competence than confidence. She loves fixing things and secretly wants to be a bosun.  Great support to everyone when we were challenged meteorically both on the boat and the hill.  Our chief fundraiser too!

Katy, our enthusiastic, young pup, with all round sailing skills, mistress of the RIB and secret smartie eater. Not only did she bring her homework on board, she did it too!

Caz showed great skills on the helm and out on the hill. She went over and above the call of duty when a gust of wind blew her forward and she jumped to stop herself hitting me,

tumbling down the rocks and smacking her face ending up with a serious black eye. Great sense of humour and support during the long, trudge to the Sligachan pushing forwards in horizontal rain.
 Paul is our chef extraordinaire, ship's mate and bosun. Going all out to help in all situations both emotionally and physically!!  Completely at home in the environment and having some epic tales to tell!

John - a great sense of humour in the face of adversity, good all round sailing skills, master of the RIB and excellent ballast on the hill when Caz and I were about to take off!
