Just two days available, but a great trip to a from Charlestown. No wind and bright sunshine going. So we were able to hug the coast in a waveless calm. Rowed ashore to see Charlestown. Very commercialised with pubs and restaurants galore. A couple of run-down old boats and pay to go on the inner dockside. Anyway, it warrants a visit, especially be sea.
A very peaceful night at anchor off the harbour and anchor aweigh at about 07.30. Another millpond, but overcast. Motoring at about 4 knots close to the coastline. Off Looe, 8 knots of wind has filled in from the north-west. Bliss – a bit of sun, no waves to talk of, a gently offshore wind from behind and a gentle sail back towards Plymouth Oh – and absolutely no traffic or crowds. Hey ho.
