Hi Dad and Catherine, Glad your both ok and having a good sail, there are two offers on the house one better than the other, Jenny at Premiers knows both, The first is a family, all adult good sound people offered the full amount, If you are out of contact shall I give the go ahead< also I thought that if all goes through then rather than approach the current tennants about the summerhouse base and shower, as you have an offer on the table to let them check out and do the items of work then, Let me know asap as I need to get back to Jenny to give her the go ahead, I will call her tomorrow anyway, Love Rich xxx

Glad the wind turned to SSW all day at 15 to 22 knots, which gives us a very close angle towards our destination, sailing at 51 to 60 degrees to the wind, Kahia is hopping through the waves like a rocking horse with the hydrovane as happy tail doing a superb job steering us. Sorry to hear our SSB transmission is bad, not the best time to check the terminals. We are grateful to Astarte for giving a brilliant relay.
