Apart from the occasional large pebble acting as a wheel chock the trailer went easily down the slip, without falling off the side. I floated Ciao Bella off the trailer and anchored her off the side of the slipway, then swam back to the trailer to recover that.
Eventually on board, dried and motoring over to EDSC it felt great to be back on the water.

As I paddled away the sun was just descending and the view, as always, was stunning. It took about 4 hours in total to launch this year, not bad, especially as I was going at a very unhurried pace.
|It's good to be back.|
