With restrictions still in France because of Covid , we are heading along the South Coast and hope to visit the Scilly Isles early June.

    Sharpham Point

    June 25 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    With the tide rising we set off up stream to see how Fino performed in the rivers. A gentle cautious meander as only 1m of water under us as we went past Dittisham and onto Sharpen Point. A fab place to stop overnight but need to do shopping first!Read more

    Fowey

    June 18 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    After a very rolly night in Mevagissey we headed over to Fowey for a lazy day. On arrival we hear that the local yacht club and 2 restaurants are all closed because of covid. No shower for Sal and dinner on board! Fantastic afternoon just chilling in the sun whilst apparently torrential rain at home!Read more

    Mevagissey

    June 17 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    After filling up with water we head off with wind over tide for a smooth but wet ride to Mevagissey. A very tight entrance and some tricky manoeuvring tying up with an on shore wind, rocks and a very long bow sprit on the boat in front.
    Tricky day but not as bad as some...on the way over a mayday went out for a lost diver outside Plymouth and on arrival a helicopter was hovering above waiting to pick up an old chap who had fallen off the 4m quay with his bike at low tide.
    Once we had calmed down and the quay had reopened we went to explore the pretty little fishing village and buy skip a beer.

    Falmouth

    June 16 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    With Fino safely tied up on a bouy we decide to have a day out to Falmouth. A paddle in the canoe to shore, a 15 walk up a long hill to nearest bus stop and a 35 minute bus journey so definitely a coffee stop on arrival!
    Falmouth was much better than I expected, felt like a larger Cowes with the sailing buzz, but still trying to clear up after the G7 summit - a cruise liner had been moored in port which had accommodated all the police and security staff. Not only had they temporarily closed a large section of the docks and restaurants but the ones that were open were short of stock and waiting on supplies. Not good when one of these items was lager!
    Back for early doors on board with fellow KYC cruisers, Ann and Elizabeth.
