My son, Stephen, flew over to Cork from Newquay to join us for a few days in Baltimore - we sailed over to Sherkin Island for the weekend and enjoyed a live-music gig on the Saturday evening. Mick Flannery and band entertained us with his own original songs until past midnight, finishing with two standing ovations.
At 1530 on Sunday 12th September we helped Paul cast off from the Islander's Rest pontoon for his final leg to Milford Haven, south-westerlies helping him on his way.  Stephen and I made our way back to Baltimore on the ferry, then made for Cork Airport and our separate destinations.
Skipper will add his account of this solo final-leg shortly.
