A 6:45 start with a visit fuel berth on the first of the ebb, a good time to get onto it although the current was a little more than ideal, but mooring port side to, going into the tide was not difficult and puts the fuel cap on the shore side for access. Rarely could you sensibly berth single handed going down tide on this berth.
It was a nice sunny day with variable winds often very light and sometime non-existent, but I managed to sail all the way except for using the engine for a total of half an hour to leave Fowey and to anchor at Cawsand.
|Passing outside off the Udder Rock south cardinal buoy a few|
miles east of Fowey. One of the few buoys I can reliably
remember the name of. The rock dries 0.6 metres at LAT
but I have never seen it.
|The Cawsand anchorage|
|The anchorage was quite busy when I arrived (not as many as|
shown, at least half of these boats are local on moorings), and got
more so. There was a certain pleasure in recognising several larger
boats that had motored past me as I sailed.
23 miles in ten and a half hours.
