The plan now was to position myself to get to the Channel Islands, probably initially Guernsey to meet up with fellow Jester John.
The first stop would be Cawsand on the west side of Plymouth Sound.

ashore for some fresh food and an ice cream. I had thought to have
a swim but the water was so cold I chickened out.

a long chin wag and catch up ensued.

To Hope Cove
With strong winds forecast in a couple of days I decided to head for Salcombe as a better start point for Guernsey and, given the likely variability of the winds direction, with better protection than the Jennycliff Bay anchorage in Plymouth Sound that had been my first thought. The next day was forecast to be decent so I initially headed for Hope Cove to anchor for the night.
