Staff training - a trip on the Leewin II

We often compare running a business and workshop like running a ship. Christmas is such a crazy time of year for us and so we had our Christmas party yesterday on the Leewin II. After raising the sail and doing a few other important sailing jobs, Jane took the wheel to steer the ship around a very large tanker and do a U-y (wearing the ship).

We relaxed for the rest of journey. Some of the team discussed the finer points of how there are plenty of 'lines' on a ship but only two 'ropes', one of us concentrated on the horizon, and one spent a long time looking closely at the stitching detail on the sail.
