We’ve been aboard since 16th, but a combination of rain and strong South Westerlies has kept us in Dartmouth. L’s cousin Gill visited on Sunday.
Switched gas cylinders yesterday.
Left with ‘Mat Ali’, beating inshore to Start Point and through tidal race. Then started engine to make Westerly progress. Both decided to divert into Salcombe, rather slog all the way to Plymouth. Entered at low water, on the transit, while other boats went around West end of bar. That looks to make sense next time.
Rafted together on pontoon beyond ‘Bag’ visitors pontoon for tranquil evening. All relieved not to be going further.
