Even if the wind is fitful and the weather changeable, it's good to be on the water.
I launched late morning from Portobello beach and spent the day on the Firth of Forth, sailing, rowing and fishing.
The boat is Scratch, the Walkabout design by John Welsford, that I built last year.
I'm in the early stages of getting to grips with video and I'm discovering it's not as easy at it looks - and realising the amount of time it takes to produce even a short video.
As a result I'm increasingly appreciating the skill - and commitment - of Dylan Winter with his Keep Turning Left series. His sailing videos are superb, but then he is a professional video maker!
