Having had very little time aboard and sailing in the past three weeks we found the weekend free at last.
The forecast was NNW4 and we left Gillan under full genoa and reefed main and we were soon logging up to 6kts across Falmouth Bay in a ENE direction, with the odd squall coming though which set the water running down the side decks and lifted our speed over 6kts, it was a great sail. At Pendennis Point we turned north now hard on the wind but halfway though the ebbing spring tide our speed over ground dropped to 4.5kts but still going though the water just as fast, we were enjoying ourselves. We were able to sail all the way to Turnaware Point before starting the engine. We motored into Channels Creek and dropped anchor, we had logged 8.5nm in 1.75hrs.
