2023 June 24th, Day 72 Day trip to Turnaware.

I arranged to meet up with Ron, a long time and current Achilles 24 owner but who also has a Hustler 25, "Carrie Anne" which he keeps on a tidal pontoon at Penryn. I weighed anchor at 07:10 and motored over to the Penryn river to meet him as he came down.

The Brig "Phoenix" of Portsmouth.
Falmouth, the Penryn river goes round the town to the north, Ron
was hugging the north shore and I did not see him between the
moored boats until we were almost abeam.
Meeting up off Falmouth, Pics of Sancerre by Ron Dustow.
Heading NE from Trefusis Point
Ron is still recovering from major injury to an ankle
 so I went ahead to moor first so as to take his lines
Sancerre with "Carrie Ann" right just above Turnaware Point.
A long chat with other owners followed by lunch.
In the afternoon I headed back to St Mawes just in time for a display by the Red Arrows.
Boats gathering at Little Molunan bay to watch the display.
