A Timely Day Off

The westerly has arrived. We launched at our usual time this morning and there was about 15 knots of wind on the water. This is an uncomfortabl wind, but by no means a boat slayer. However, there is another big buster on the way, and we don’t want to have our last tag committed and find ourselves in a nasty sea. So we turned around and came home to toasted sangers for breakfast. This afternoon will be devoted to chopping up our fish samples etc. etc. Tonight is the big final, and all of the sardine run boat crews will head somewhere festive. Good times indeed.
