|North of Wolf Rock Lighthouse when I had a few hours |
peace and quiet whilst sailing.
I did not want to be stuck in Ireland for a week and then perhaps find the wind still to be a problem so, having plenty of fuel, I left at 04:30 on Monday and suffered noisy motoring most of the way to Fowey arriving at 22:00 on Tuesday.
Lots of Dolphins on the way back:
Dolphins in the Celtic Sea (it starts a bit slow but quickly gets better)
unfortunately the high resolution original was too big for Blogger
but this is reasonable full screen on a medium laptop or iPad.
The promised stiff easterly winds came in on Wednesday morning peaking with very strong winds (F8 & F9s being reported) on Thursday and Friday so it was 3 days sitting out the weather on a mooring in Fowey, with some boat maintenance and these blog postings passing the time.
|Mooring buoys in Fowey are very close together!|
And in high season boats are rafted up!!!
