Mother's Day visit planned, super relaxed atmosphere and a working solar panel. Little
things make it very beautiful. With my eyes half closed, I look into the bright sun and hoist a fender onto the deck. We're sailing again. After three working days on the side, it's over again. Some consultations here and there, but that can be done digitally on board.
A day or three-four on the road
