I put the boat back on its trailer.  But I didn’t put it in the water, because I don’t know when I will set off.

Before I took the boat out, I tried one more time to start.  I left at 1:30 a.m.  I was alone and it was pretty dark!

I made good progress until the wind picked up.  I was worried, so I tied my boat up and waited for the winds to settle down.  The longer I waited, the worse it got.  “What to do?” I wondered.  I waited.

I slept in on Thursday.  Stormy weather, strong wind and fog were in store for the weekend.  It would be safest to wait longer.

That evening, I met a nice man named Jack Gill.  Jack has helped other sailors like me.

We are still keeping an eye on the weather.  Please stay tuned.
