Helford to Gillan

Friday 27th July

WP_20180727_10_48_46_ProAfter a late start Vicki cooked breakfast and after we sat in the cabin reading, this was a cloudy showery day but still warm.


As we were aground 1.5hrs either side of low water we stayed until we had for about an hour after we had re-floated and picked up the anchor at 1545hrs, we motored out of the moorings and set just the genoa, the wind was all over the place southwest then southeast then south and very gusty. Gusting 5 at times, this sent Elektra on her way due east at 5kts, when we thought we had gone far enough we tacked and sailed back into Gillan, still at times getting the side decks in the water during the stronger gusts.

We picked up our mooring in Gillan at 1630hrs having logged just 3.5nm
