Update on 2020… weathering the storm

We have been sat at anchor since the end of last season, with our sails rolled up in anticipation of the 2020 summer, but right now a storm is over us and it looks like we will have to run on bare poles for a while.

We have battened down the hatches and we will hang on to the ship, we will look after our crew and wait. The storm will pass – they always do, and then we’ll be hoisting the number one or the big kite and we’ll be scorching along on a sunny day with 20 knots and a rolling sea. And all of this will be but a memory.

We will ride this out, waiting for the day we can open the hatches and hoist some sails again.

Hold fast! We’ll get there, we just got a long miserable beat to endure before we round the windwark mark and pop the kite.

Needless to say, right now we are not taking any bookings until the weather out there settles.

Welcome to 2020 at 7th Wave, we are looking forward to welcoming you on board this summer…
