It Shouldn’t Happen to a Cat, Iain and Penny Kidson

Iain and Penny won the Yachting World Family Cruising Trophy in the CA’s log competition for this account of a cruise to the Netherlands with their grandsons. They set out for a standard trip. It was not to be. They found themselves in Oostende with a broken transmission which they repaired before going on to Holland. But there was more damage than they thought and they were left engineless in Hellevoetsluis. Getting home produced mechanical and navigational challenges. Lessons were learnt! But they made it – with some relief.
