So there actually isn’t all that much to say for this post. I am still at the boatyard in the Isle of Skye, on my Workaway job. However, i have been learning, and have had the time to read through most of my book (Dark Tower volume three!).
The atmosphere here is great. Everyone I work with, and everyone who passes through the yard has a laid back attitude. The work is hard at times, from sanding and painting boats and stripping down engines, to tarping up tree bases in preparation for the winter… Followed by lots of mellowing out and generally soaking up the good vibes.
The high point, thus far, is my first REAL sail on a yacht! Though I only steered the thing, I observed the more knowledgeable ones as they went about their business of raising and adjusting the various sails. It all comes with time and practice! I must say, i’m warming up to the idea of one day getting into yachting… One day.
