Tales Of Nervous Tension

Posted in Sailing by Joseph Moore on March 11, 2010

Boats like Nervous Tension are great. Being relatively unique, they seem to be a bit more noteworthy than the hordes of ‘plastic lozenges’ as a certain Mr Winter would say. A quick dig on Google and you can find some interesting stuff, like news from the Rye Harbour Lifeboat website in late 2008. I assume it was the journey from the Medway to Langstone Harbour. Read the article here.

“Yacht thought to be in trouble

Rye Harbour RNLI relief Lifeboat B722 ‘Beatrice Dorothy’ launched to the 24ft sail yacht ‘Nervous Tension’ who had been reported to Dover Coastguard as appearing to be in trouble, off Jury’s Gap. RNLI relief Lifeboat B722 launched today at 5.52 pm and arrived at the casualty eight minutes later. When the lifeboat crew arrived at the yacht, the two sailors advised that they were not in any trouble, and confirmed that everything was OK. They were wished a safe onward journey to Sovereign Harbour at Eastbourne.”

    This was our attempt to get it to Southampton so we could actually look after her and get her topsides into good nick. The breeze had picked up and she needed a reef in her sail so my husband had to keep motoring against the tide which resulted in us going round in Circles which worried some people ashore!
