Beware the Lesser Spotted Dogfish

Well, since my last entry I have acquired a new crew member… whoop whoop! I have loved the challenge of sailing alone, but it has been fab to be a skipper with crew! Although my new crew has sea legs and excellent helming skills this is from his history of sea fishing, so I am definitely going to have to work on his love of sailing… I am going to enjoy this new challenge… 

The only down side about gaining my new crew member has been the introduction of fishing (7 dogfish, 4 crabs and a whiting caught in 2 hours!) from Poppet with which came the demise of my one and only nautical tea towel… oh and the smell of lug worm! Totally gross! However this has definitely been a price worth paying and we even saw dolphins!
