Arrival at Dieppe

Created: Friday, 03 August 2012

Arrival at Dieppe, a pleasant port with lots of commercial activity in the many shopping streets. I bought some food and filled up a reserve can with gasoil. After my return to the boat my only and 2nd crew member informed me he's returning home. Had the weather been better, he would have stayed, he told me. That means that I can call myself a solo sailor now. Allah decided this is the appropriate time for me to handle things alone now. I plan to do a big trip tomorrow with sea-anchorage at the side of a protecting wall neighbouring a petroleum port at Cap d'Antifer. The next day I will sail Insha'allah to Cherbourg. This picture can give you an idea how some sailors get discouraged to continue sailing.
