Channels Creek to Gillan

Sunday 19th May

The forecast was north-northwest 4-5 for our sail back to Gillan.


We lifted our anchor at 1500hrs and set just the genoa to sail south down the Carrick Roads, the wind was due north and Elektra was logging 4-5 knots SOG into the 3rd hour of the incoming spring tide. It was lovely to sit back and watch the dinghy racing as we passed by.



Nearing Black Rock we saw another Sadler and took some photos. The wind died away a bit as we sailed pass Pendennis Point but once out in Falmouth Bay again the wind was back. We picked up our mooring at 1645hrs having logged 8.5nm.
