There wasn’t any hurry to leave Malpus, with the low water being at 1216hrs and the sounder showing 0, we waited until 1320hrs before casting off. The sounder was still showing 0 but Elektra didn’t ground leaving the pontoon. Vicki motored Elektra slowly out and back down the Truro River with very little showing under her keel while I coiled lines and stowed fenders.
At around 1400hrs south of Turnaware buoy I set all sail, and we sailed on slowly on making around 2-3kts SOG against the tide. Slow until we past out of the Carrick Roads into Falmouth Bay were SOG increased to 5-6kts, it was lovely sailing and I picked up Elektra’s mooring in Gillan at 1625hrs having logged 11.5nm
