Last week I sent April off on a mission to find a nice boat for us to enjoy on Lake Maggiore. She found a motorboat that took her fancy! (?) It’s really quite shocking for a sailing family to have a motorboat, but after the young pup explained herself, I agree she’s chosen well and found the purrfect solution for us on the lake.
Don’t worry furiends, Nocturne isn’t going anywhere. She’s my true love, but this new (to us) boat will be lots of fun when we can’t get to Nocturne. We’re going to love exploring the lake. We will probably spend some weekends at the top of the lake in Switzerland too which will be fun. The ability to race home at over 20 knots will be a novelty for us too!
The boat has got two cabins, a galley and a head (bathroom). The best bit is how much space there is out side for sunbathing and it will be easy for the humans and April to jump in and out of the water for swims… I’ll stay behind to supervise the boat obviously!
The current name of the boat is Walrus, but we’d like to think of something more purrsonal to us. Do you have any ideas? Current contenders are; ‘Puffed Out‘ or ‘No wind, no problem‘… No seriously… We’d like a nice name.
Today we’ve driven from Milan back to Rome and tomorrow we’re setting sail for Ponza to spend the week. It’s going to be pawesome for April to have her first proper sailing holiday! The weather forecast is purrfect and I’m so excited!
