All in all an excellent holiday, and we kept in touch with the sea and boats through our reading - the excellent Narrow Dog to Carcassonne (the one about the narrowboat which crossed the English Channel with two pensioners and a whippet on board, and then headed down through the canals), and Paul Heiney's Last Man Across the Atlantic, which sounds like my kind of racing, to be honest (Sam found it a bit frustrating).
Coming back we glanced at the ybw.com discussion forums and were amazed to discover that an innocent post about doing laundry on board had become four pages of rants about whether people who worry about washing are fit to live aboard their boats at all. Oh dear. Possibly, having chosen to spend a week in English hills instead of in the Med, we are disqualified from posting to the Liveaboard Link for ever?
