Plymouth to Fowey

Tall ship just out of Plymouth 


Sat on deck contemplating hours of motor sailing

No swell at all

New Tender

One of my favourite sails mainly because it is close to home and easy on navigation. Go round Rame Head and sail west until you reach Fowey. Ok, so not much wind today so it was motor sailing on auto helm all the way to ensure I made it before dark. I spent most my time cleaning the deck and ropes whilst the boat managed all by itself.

As I don't like towing a dinghy, I left the mini RIB on my buoy at Torpoint and took my new tender with me, one that roll up on deck. The 2.3hp motor that just pushed the RIB along makes this lightweight tender fly and it even gets on the plane.
