Monday 25th June
With the forecast of strong east wing from early tomorrow, we decided we would move around to Green Bay on the evening high water.
In the morning at around low water we used the dinghy to get from St Martin’s to St Mary’s for shopping 3nm each way, mainly food but my in car phone charger had stopped working, I needed a new one and was very pleased to find one in town, we would have stopped for a pub lunch but having already waited 1/2hr for the pub to open were going to have to wait another hour for food so decided to go back to Elektra at St Martin’s where we had lunch.
Soon after floating we motored out and north up Tean Sound and set the genoa to sail north of Tean west between St Helen’s and Round Island and north of Men-a-vaul to our waypoint off Kettle, north of Tresco and into New Grimsby Sound, we sail write up to the moored yachts before starting the engine. Motoring though the moorings to the entrance to Green Bay between Merrick Island and Half Tide Bar.
Finding a good open spot before dropping anchor in Green Bay, after another quite night. Next day we set off in the dinghy for lunch at the New Inn on Tresco and the following day I got out early and scrubbed Elektra’s bottom before having a lazy day in the cockpit
We were out again for lunch at the Hell Bay Hotel, Bryher on Thursday. We stayed in Green Bay though the strong east winds (Tue-Wed) until deciding to leave Scilly on Friday morning before the next forecasted blow over the weekend.
Here you can see our Bruce anchor which dug it’s own way in during the F6 easterly winds on Tuesday and Wednesday.
