After the last weekend we were looking for a weekend doing nothing and not to far from Gillan.
Tony and Sandra the last owners of “Elektra” had got hold of me though this blog and said they had her cruising chute which I could have . There mooring is in the Precuil River and we had arranged to go and pick it up in the evening.
Having had the Monday off I had to work on Friday and only got back home at 4pm, so it was a bit of a mad panic unloading the work gear, getting a shower and loading up the boat gear and going to the beach loading punt and heading out to “Elektra”
We dropped the mooring 1750hrs with a forecast of WSW5, I set just the genoa and we sped across Falmouth Bay into the Precuil River, 7nm in 1.25hrs. we picked up a mooring near Tony and Sandra new yacht and Tony came over in the punt for us both. we enjoyed a very nice evening chatting about yachts with drinks and nibbles. Tony handed over the sail and we headed back to “Elektra” dropped the mooring and motored into Place Manor to anchor for the night.
