Porthconger, St Agnes, to The Neck of the Pool, St Martin’s

Sunday 24th June

WP_20180624_08_03_07_ProAfter another lazy start to the day, I got out and rowed ashore to take some photos in the morning sunshine, this was the start of another fantastic day. On arriving back aboard Vicki had cooked a full English breakfast for us both to enjoy.


After washing up we got Elektra ready to leave Porth Conger, the days forecast was looking very settled and we had decided to go to St Martin’s. We lifted the anchor at 1310hrs and motored out and headed up St Mary’s Road for Cow Bar before turning north over the shallow ground in the direction of Tean Sound. We were going to use an anchorage we hadn’t used before, on the chart called “The Neck of the Pool”. We motored in slowly looking for a sandy bottom with out any weed, nearly up to the local mornings we dropped anchor at 1410hrs, here Elektra would dry out 2.5hrs either side of low water. When happy she was holding ok we settled down to enjoy the rest of the day.


This rest of the day turn out to be the hottest and best of the holiday, one of those days everything is to much effort, later in the afternoon Vicki and I used the dinghy to survey the area of the anchorage for other good spots to anchor. In the evening just before dark I climbed down the ladder and took some photos of the anchorage at low water.
