Friday 31st July
Getting out aboard by lunch time the forecast wasnt looking very good but sutch are the British summers! We dropped the mooring at 1430hrs and sailed off into the gloom with only Elektra’s genoa set with a southwest force 4 pushing us along at 4-4.5kts. The fog was think at first but cleared a little the nearer we got to St Mawes, we entered the moorings at 1550hrs having logged 5.5nm and started the engine. Motoring into the Precuil River and dropping anchor at 1615hrs.
Still raining Vicki and I started putting the cockpit encloser up for the first time, not everthing going very well but we got there in the end. I expect it will be easier next time!
