Slipping Wyuna

We left Clark’s Court Bay Marina and headed for St David’s Harbour which is about 5 nautical miles away. After negotiating the channel between Hogg Island and Calvigny Island we headed south east in a very confused sea. We put up the head sail and the boat settled for a much gentler ride. On arrival at Grenada Marine the slip was not ready for us as they had to move another cat. We stood off for nearly 2 hours waiting. I got a bit impatient and launched the kayak and paddled ashore. As soon as I got close to the jetty they moved the other boat so I quickly turned around and paddled back to the boat. Then the exciting/nervous bit for Bruce (first time he has done this with such a big boat) was that he had to back the boat in between 2 concrete walls with less than a metre on each side. All went well he did an excellent job, did not touch but we had our moments and the yard’s handlers did a great job of securing and keeping the boat safe. They hoisted the boat, Scraped off the barnacles, gave the bottom a high pressure spray then moved it to a location in the yard and set it up on blocks. The boat is now solid but I am still rocking as if I am on the water which is a bit scary. We should be here until the weekend as they will clean and antifoul the hull and replace the anodes on the props. After a long hot and demanding day relaxing with a nice cold beer.
