I have been asked for the link to the dismasting story. It is here:
with thanks to Yachting World, where it appeared originally.
The North West Passage website www.berrimlla.com/tng and awberrimilla.blogspot.com have now been cleaned of dubious spam invitations to mess with parts of ones anatomy. Thanks Stephen. It needs a further tidy up and some links but it's all there.
I parked Berri alongside the local sailing club on Sunday evening where she was overrun by kids and even some adults. Lots of fun and some interesting questions. Plus the inevitable Sharks? Pirates? I don't have any photos but there was someone there with a camera, so I will see if I can scrounge a .jpg or two.
