2021 Summer Cruise, Day 3.

Generally more of the same with very light variable winds in very hot weather but still pleasant with some sailing and great scenery as I hugged the coast to get the best views.
I was close in except for a brief diversion to keep clear of the
Straight Point range, I was 30 minutes too late to get past before
firing started.
I'm glad I was not on the beach when these land slips happened
west of Beer Head.
Achilles 9 metre "Sancerre" off Ladram Bay
Ladram Bay, 60+ years ago we had holidays there.
Achilles 9 metre "Sancerre" off Dawlish
Rebuilding the sea wall at Dawlish
Achilles 9 metre "Sancerre" off Dawlish
"The Parson & Clerk" between Dawlish and Teignmouth, looking
smaller than I remember them from holidays at Dawlish Warren
in the 60's.
Achilles 9 metre "Sancerre" off Exeter
Teignmouth, I would have liked to stay overnight here but the
tide was wrong to get in and out of the tricky entrance.
I was surprised to see the Queen Mary back off Babbacombe 
where she had been a few weeks back as I had seen her
in Lyme Bay on day 2, confirmed by AIS.
Going close in around Start Bay put me in a counter current
saving quite a bit of time.
Achilles 9 metre "Sancerre" off Slapton
A low flying military Helicopter over Slapton Sands.
I anchored off of Hallsand, tucked well into the cliff at 17:30 after 42 miles and more than 6 hours motoring and almost 5 hours sailing in the very light winds.
