Leguer River (Lannion)
Leaving Trebeurden was no where near as daunting as coming in. The fact that the depth marker was clean and visible helped!!
A very short hop around to the Leguer River - a mere 6 miles in fact. Wind from the North Force 4 so the sails went up. This was just going to be an overnight stop at anchor. The river does dry out but there are a couple of deep water pools that don't. So we went in search of these, found one with a depth of 7 ½ metres and calculated that at low tide we would still have ½ a metre under the keel. It was a beautiful spot. Surrounded by trees and birdsong and lots of terwit terwooing from a gaggle of owls. What is a group of owls called? Anyone know? It was pitch black. No light polution and an amazing starry night. The before and after high tide photos show just how much water leaves this river leaving us bobbing about in a deep puddle.

Thought for this post : It is good to explore the places that you find daunting. The rewards far out way the fear.
Highlight for this post: The birdsong and clear view of the solar system
We have been sailing together for 15 years and have owned Stiletto for 13 of them. We have exhausted the Solent and the South Coast and all the other usual passages: West Country, France, Channel Islands etc. that are available from our home port of Gosport. [...]We are now embarking on our "Slow Boat to the Med" big adventure, having sailed out of Gosport in April 2017, with our final destination being the island of Ikaria, in the Eastern Aegean - where Andreas has his family roots. This will become the base for our adventures in Greek waters in the coming years. With hundreds of stunning island locations to cruise we could be away a while!
