After the trip from Fowey this leg was a lot more civilised, a brisk wind was forecast but I was concerned about the sea, I have previously been in the area a day after strong easterlies and it was not pleasant, also the seas and over-falls off of the Lizard are not to be trifled with. I decided to head out to see what it was like with the option of returning to St Mawes or going to the Truro River if things looked grim.
|A 3 knot spring tide and a brisk wind made it advisable to give
the Lizard a wide berth.
|Yet again a ship was directly on my planned track.
35 miles in six and three-quarter hours.
The weather forecast for the next few days is confused, I could be off in a day or two or here for a while.

Update Wednesday: Hopefully I will be away on Friday, then it’s likely to be light winds through the weekend.
