A wet an ‘orrible’ trip up the coast. Just a few miles though, so not the end of the world. We slipped quietly from Newton Ferrers at 07h30 in the morning, and motored out into a grey mizzly day, with visibility of just 1/4nm or so… this meant that no sooner had we left Newton Ferrers than it’s cliffs had disappeared into the gloom.

This set the theme for the trip… no wind (hey met office… what happened to the forecast F4 to F5 occ F6?)… the kids stayed in bed (sensible)… SWMBO and I got soaked on deck…

Never mind… by 10h15 we were tied up in Salcombe… an easy entrance despite its famous sand bar… with good transits to make it easy…

Soon as we tied up, the sun came out, and the world seemed a lot nicer alround!

Miles logged 17nm
Miles this trip 399nm
Miles this season 779nm
Miles since this blog started 5,359nm
