Waiting for the wind to blow!

Posted on

I never realised just how many variations of a windy day there were until we started to turn the sails.After hearing about British Rail's issues with the wrong kind of snow and scoffing at their excuses I find myself now sympathising with their plight having experienced the frustrations of the british weather. For the last few weeks its either been too windy, gusting in the wrong direction, not windy enough or just so cold the spider and striking rod have frozen solid.
After much perseverance from the Wednesday maintenance crew ( and a little persuasion from a crow bar) the sails managed a 'turn' on Wednesday and again on Saturday for a very special 'Birthday Girl'.
So , friends, keep watching the skies and you never know it could be the right kind of wind and you might just see then turn again!
