@vaviurka peeked out of the hatch and yelled "Shit! Come!". A boat was within a few metres of us, anchor down, engine on, a person struggling with something on the foredeck. Both boats swinging very close. Not good.
Yelling. Older Spanish lady on her own, but luckily spoke English. Wind gusting up a bit, only understood half, but she had a problem and happily accepted help. Asked @vaviurka to be ready with a fender, jumped in, swam over.
Ode To A Jet-Ski Person
Jet-ski person, selfish fink,
May your silly jet-ski sink,
May you hit a pile of rocks,
Oh Hoonish, summer, coastal pox.
Noisy, smoking, dickhead fool
On your loathsome leisure tool,
Give us all a jolly lark
And sink beside a hungry shark.
Scream as in its fangs you go,
Your last attention-seeking show,
While on the beach we all join in
With ‘Three cheers for the dorsal fin!’

It's back! We have a mainsail again!
Didn't have much wind to use it today. Still, very glad it's fixed.
In a stroke of bad luck, @vaviurka got stung by #jellyfish again today. Meanwhile me and everyone else around us didn't even see any. She's banned from swimming unless it's been blowing offshore now 😜
Anchored in 15m depth today, unusual but keeps (some of) the riffraff away. Laid out 65m of chain, which is almost everything. Huge swing circle!
