Just before I set off round Britain a friend of mine introduced me to a saying that seems to come back up in my mind quite often… “man plans, God laughs”.
Well God was in hysterics today! Just as I had finished my carefully planned passage plan and prepped the boat ready to leave for Grimsby, the weather came in in full force.
We had expected it to be a bit windy when I left with a bit of rain but it was due to die down and I would have a clear window of weather to get to Grimsby. However, that was not the case and after a quick walk up the breakwater I made the decision that I wouldn’t be going to Grimsby today.
