Early start for Fowey. It’s mistier than expected as we motorsail out. ‘Mat Ali’ soon dispears from view. We motor Westwards until eventually the mists clear, the wind picks up and backs to SW off Plymouth. The Plymouth lifeboat passes close astern on its way to the Eddystone lighthouse. From there we sail, soon adding the topsail to fetch neatly to Fowey.
‘Mat Ali’ has sailed more and comes in an hour behind us to raft up. The Troys and river boats are lining up for a start as we head for the yacht club for showers and supper.
