The new Start

6 weeks have gone since my arrival in Le Havre and they are flown.
Despite being virtually all the time alone, the time, this time has flown.
It 's a great feeling. Feeling busy, laboriously, emotionally, happily occupied.
The list of work to do growing day by day together with the pleasure of doing them, the list of projects growing together with the desire to achieve them.



"When you set out on your journey to Ithaca,
pray that the road is long,
full of adventure, full of knowledge.
The Lestrygonians and the Cyclops,
the angry Poseidon -- do not fear them:
You will never find such as these on your path,
if your thoughts remain lofty, if a fine
emotion touches your spirit and your body.
The Lestrygonians and the Cyclops,
the fierce Poseidon you will never encounter,
if you do not carry them within your soul,
if your soul does not set them up before you.


Top yearly tide in Le Havre

Today in Le Havre we had the top tide coefficient  of the year, 109.

As you can appreciate from the pictures, here in the marina the depth changes significantly. The pontoons are floating to allow such a change with no effect on the mooring of yachts.

A real experience for whom like me is not used to such huge tide.

This morning we had no rain, so I took the chance to do some work on the deck. This time on the mast.

I want to check every single screw, every connection, the spreaders, the halyards.
