First a picture from the English Raid photo collections. This was taken by Henry Trevelyan and shows Daisy G on the left and the wonderful Swedish pilot boat, Haegar, from Vienna. We are just setting off from Newtown Bay on the Isle of Wight for Lymington. We put in a reef very quickly just after this was taken as the wind blew up.
The shed is coming on well, with the first courses of the base blockwork coming out of the ground. The blocks are made from local limestone by a family just across the road from us. They are just like natural stone, so it should look good. All being well it will be ready in time for the winter.
