Slow sail home

Sunday 12th July

With light winds forecasted for Sunday we knew the best sailing would be in the Carrick Roads. Motoring out of Channels Creek into a southly force 3 at 1200hrs pulling up the main and setting the sails, our first tack took us from Pill Creek across the Roads before tacking again across to Mylor. Our next tack took us nearly to St Mawes before tacking back to Falmouth Harbour, the next tack fadded away as the wind dropped off so we started the engine and motored across Falmouth Bay to Gillan, it had taken us 3hrs to cover 10nm.
