Oriole’s new crew join in Dublin
Posted in : Oriole
Having joined yesterday and instantly dropped Jane over the side for a MOB drill, the new crew spent the (rainy) day familiarising themselves with Oriole and each other once the most amazing breakfast had been cooked by Mark. We decided to stay put rather than head south with gale force 10 winds in the forecast. Fin was dangled over the edge for MOB drill and we refreshed ( learned) our sail trim, points of sail and so on. We learned how to tie a one handed bowline and some other knots. We revised our flares and EPIRBs before spending the afternoon baking and preparing the veggie curry before movie night ( The death of Stalin).
