No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Kings Bromley Marina.

We're back on No Direction now for a couple of weeks after our May bank holiday weekend doing other things, Jayne visiting relatives in Derbyshire and me sailing.

I've posted a couple of short videos on You Tube taken with my new Contour Roam 2 headcam, it's a small camera, the type cyclists fit to their helmets to film their journey, I fitted a 32gb SD micro card in place of the 4gb which it comes with so have about 2-3 hours of filming available.

We finished 20th out of 104 starters and 5th in class which is apparently very good for the type of boat we were sailing, the forecast 10 knots of wind turned out to be 20 to 28 knots with gusts up to 37 knots, so much for weather forecasts.
The train journey back to Lichfield on Monday evening went fairly smoothly, Portsmouth Harbour to Southamptom Central and then to Birmingham New Street, unfortunately the Cross City train from Birmingham to Lichfield had received a couple of modifications to the seating arrangements.
Someone been out in the sun all day without a hat on?
