Our last day! Woke early to another beautiful sunrise over a mirror-like sea, but didn’t leave till around 10:00 in order to get the tide right past the needles , arriving home to the Beaulieu around 2:30pm ..... it was maybe our hottest day at sea of the entire trip, barely a breath of wind, blue [...]
Quietly slipped our moorings at soon after 5:00am, still dark, mirror-like water and not a breath. Just after the most beautiful sunrise (see picture), Paul, feeling a little dozey due to our early start, was startled awake by a little porpoise jumping fully out of the water right next to the boat, [...]
Sailing in tandem with Truant, we set off for Dartmouth around 9:00am ( see photo of Truant leaving Salcombe river). Shortly after that photo was taken, I nearly ran over 3 fisherman in a small dinghy. I just didn’t see them and it was scary reminder of how easily accidents can happen when not concentrating [...]
The Browns left us around midday, claiming to have enjoyed their foray into the nautical world, despite the constant (but typical) abuse coming from Pauls direction and the fact that Milla called Angus “Justin” the entire time. The more I tried not to, the more it just happened.
Yesterday’s wind had sadly left us, so we had a quiet motor sail round to Salcombe, accompanied by the odd lazy dolphin here and there. As always, Salcombe was a hive of nautical activity. We anchored just opposite the town, on the East side of the river and sat and had lunch, just watching it all [...]
After a leisurely breakfast, we set sail for the Yelm River. It was a strong force 4 to 5, gusting 6 occasionally, with a relatively flat sea and the wind on our aft quarter. We zoomed along and got there so fast that Angus felt he had not had enough excitement for the day, so we turned around and sailed back in the opposite direction for a bit so that they could experience the difference between sailing with the wind on your nose and the wind behind you. A lovely sunny evening in the scenic beauty of the river Yelm.
