Each day skipper announced "not today" wind was always on the
nose with a lumpy sea, we made plans to leave Friday the eleventh.
Thursday the tenth. Bob (Four Bells who we saw in Fowey) and
his crew mate Derek came for drinks to look at our plans and tell us of their
experiences in our ports of choice, they left for supper.
Hans and Tina (Malmo) and Howard and Pauline (Gryphon
II) came over for an impromptu leaving party. A real fun night. Same old
story - we didn't go the next day.
We jumped up on Saturday and went. Sea
calm with some swell and wind dropped right off compared to all the previous
seven days. Our log is seriously off by miles?????
Hans helped us off, once at sea we counted twelve boats heading in the
same direction, probably as port fatigued as we were. This westerly marker
buoy was four miles off the coast.
We had to
motor sail all the way to L'Abewrac'h. Many boats overtook us but we took the
short cut through The Malouine Passage (safe only in daylight) saving a good
three miles and arrived first.
The marina, we were on the left
alongside as we were only staying for one night. A lovely view from the marina
out to sea.
L'Aberwrac'h has a newish marina where
you can choose from a finger pontoon, alongside or a buoy. The female showers
were freezing so I had to stomp back to the girl for a shower.
The toilets smelt like a hamster cage
but at least Bear got a hot shower. No internet in range. New large hotel nearly
