Apart from an hours motoring past Goran Haven to Dodman Point this was a very good days sailing although I did have to hoist the spinnaker twice, once as soon as I had the anchor up and again just after Dodman, and gybe it several times before the wind settled down a bit as I approached Gerrans Bay. It was also very hot but having opening windows in the boat, which is unusual, keeps the cabin cooler than on many boats.

the "square rigger" with the fake gun ports is small iirc 14 metres.

|The wind failed when I was approaching Chapel Point so I motored|
inside Gwineas Rock. The ripples on the water are largely from the tide.
