There seemed to be very little wind, having tried to sail 1-1.5kts we decided to motor and charge the batteries across the bay towards Falmouth. We had to detour around the stern of a ship which was coming into Falmouth Bay for bunkering (taking on fuel oil) after the ship and the pilot boat came the bunkering tanker out of Falmouth head on, move to starboard again, all adds interest to the day.
We had planned to go to Channels Creek at the top end of the Carrick Roads but knowing we would have to motor all the way we headed for the Precuil River instead, we found a nice spot out or the wind that had seemed to pick up in the river and dropped anchor.
Not late yet but we both fell fast asleep in the evening sunshine.

That is a very nice looking serious passage maker you’ve got yourselves. Well done.
Yachting is about enjoyment and both Vicki and myself enjoy the sitting in the sunshine as much as the sailing itself!
