Having spent two nights at anchor in Channels Creek we decided to head back to our mooring for Sunday night to avoid getting out early on Monday.
Quite a bit of the Carrick Roads is shallow, my rule to myself is keep to the deep channel 2hrs either side of LW springs, the rest of the time is ok anywhere. At 1500hr about an hour before LW we lifted the anchor and motored out down the channel to where the channel turned back to St Just in Roseland, from there we set sail into a S3, we were able to follow the channel past St Just but once we tacked we were heading back towards the shallows just south of Mylor. It was a nice slow sail logging about 3kns, our old Hurley 22 couldn’t have sailed in so little wind. Over the shallows the sounder told us there was 0.9m under the keel so we kept going into deeper water again. It took us 2hrs to tack down the Carrick Roads to Black Rock where the wind died and we started motoring.
We picked up our mooring at 1750hrs having logged 10.5nm
