Chichester Marina and Troskala is at Home – 29th July 2012
18 months ago we departed Chichester bound for St Katharine’s in London, now we silently sail up the Ichenor heading to Premier Marina’s Chichester Marina at 08:00 in the morning. As we approached the lock we motored through; I half expected some spectators awaiting our arrival but all was pretty subdued and we moored up and went for some breakfast after filling the relevant forms. We were back. It does not feel as it did before probably due to the adventure that awaits us. I wanted to relax and take some time to walk around but there was so much to do and in the back of my head I new that free time is not an option.
We spent the afternoon travelling to Portsmouth to a large chandlery in Port Solent. I managed to buy and new Navigation Light (£70) plus paints, ropes, fittings in preparation for the work that is needed. I left Port Solent £250 worst off and although I hate spending this money it is a necessity.
