A good but slow sail on the wind after Rame Head, from the anchorage to SE of Dodman when the wind faded and, not for the first time on this cruise contrary to the forecast, backed to the west so the engine went on for the last few hours. Again not for the first time the wind returned shortly before arrival.
|The old gaffer "Marguerite" anchoring in St Mawes, rig "scandalised" to|
reduce power. She was one of the 3 gaffers in Cawsand Bay when I left
and was here last year when I passed through.
|A late arrival.|
|And leaving this morning under sail, they had to heave that |
anchor up with a manual windlass, rather them than me! This was
one of the few times I have seen the local ferry manoeuvre to give
a boat a wide berth, the bowsprit may have been the reason 😏
|An old LNLI lifeboat anchored off St Mawes, I am fairly sure|
its a "Watson" from the 1940s or 50s but I don't know which variant.
