Our visitors are here for a week and to celebrate their association with Rona after 20 years I put Arne to work, kitting him out is never usually a problem but we cannot find his Danish work wear so a rummage in the shed produced a decent boilersuit and a belt fashioned out of a fishing rod case!!!!
Later in the day we spied a mast at the pontoon, I was going down to take our guests out fishing so I met up with two intrepid sailors who had come over for the day on their Wayfarer, it looked in better shape than mine. They had some wind and were finding the sun just perfect, they had sailed from Diabeg and the guy was from Chile but he didn’t sail from there.
Arne had brought 4 new fishing rods and gear from Denmark, but I was keen to show him David Banks gear that he catches all the big Pollock with, these are Norwegian hand lures fashioned to suit the Sound of Raasay fish. He picked them up on a skiing trip to Norway over 40 years ago.
We got out late afternoon for a fish, the new rods were very good to use but no fish, too bright, too warm too something. But we did get some crab and had them for dinner, delicious.
We sailed into the bay to find 8 yachts on anchor, Seems Rona was the best place to be last night.
