Last Wednesday we became the new owners of Anne Marie, an Endurance 35 sailing yacht, lying in Rye, Sussex.
We will save her and reunite her with the sea she yearns for. She has no engine, her insides are rotting from too much fresh water and she needs loads of TLC. She has been out of the water leaning against a concrete flood defence wall for over four years and not used for at least six. However already we love her and will see her in full working order. Me? I think 2 years. Carrie thinks one.
