Oops (again)

Sometimes I’m a real muppet. Went down to get the Fireball out of the barn this morning… where’s my good trailer board? Oh that’s right, still on the Cherub trailer which is now in Valencia. Bugger.

That’ll have to wait til another day then…

Taking Liberties Heads For Valencia

A big lorry turned up yesterday to whisk Taking Liberties off to her new owners in Valencia.

She’s been promised a bit of a refit and hopefully it’ll be the start of a good fleet of Cherubs in Spain!

Taking Liberties Heads For The Sun

My UK Cherub Taking Liberties, is off to her new owners this week. Lucky girl. She’ll be blasting around off the Spanish coast near Valencia. I think she’s the first Cherub in the country and with a fleet growing in France as well, let’s hope she’s the first of many. Cherubs are spreading!

Fingers Crossed

I’m sat at work keeping my fingers crossed that my new kite sock arrives today. A bunch of the Cherub guys might be coming up to Grafham at the weekend and it’d be nice to have a working kite for some blasting. Couple more knots on the wind forecast would be good too!

Just so this isn’t the dullest blog post ever, here’s a picture of my friend Ben’s Rebel 41 at anchor on a glorious summer’s day. Remember summer? All those nice warm days… and here I am wrapped up in a jumper with the heating on.

Incidentally, she’s for sale. He’s going to grow up and buy a house instead – don’t do it, Ben!
