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?????
Tina and 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 finished.
The t-shirt says it all.........
