Just arrived in Brixham. A short but tricky trip
from River Yealm.The fog and mist restricted visibility to 30 yards at times. At
last the Radar has paid its way giving us a great view of shipping trafic on the
screen. The fog horn was in good voice. I coukd easily hear it and im
Our little trip is quickly coming to an end with
only 4 days left. Its been a superb adventure and everyone have played their
part. It must be some kind of a record for 5 people to live in a confined area
for 4 weeks and all come out in one piece.
Looking at the weather it looks as if it will have
the final say with another gale brewing up. Thats one a week so far. And june is
not supposed to have any gales. Thats the english climate for you.

Arrived in the river yealm after a journey of
some 26 hours. This is a lovely spot in a river estuary near Newton Ferrars.
Tricky entrance over a sand bar and difficult navigation up the river to the
moorings. Good job it was on a rising tide as we wandered off a bit trying to
avoid all the boats. For the journey i was elected as a floating crew member
and the others paired up to share shifts. After 24 hours of clawing
their fingers off the helm i did manage to get a go! Then it starting tipping
it down. No one was ready to replace me now.
Tryed a bit of fishing in the dinghy but again no
sign of a bite.So we remain fishless for the trip.
Time running out for our little trip
Next stop Brixham.
