Plymouth to Coruna - the first 50nm
Minka of Southampton - Cruising Log
Thu 1 Sep 2011 23:12
Thursday 1 September at 1900. Position 49:39.87N 4:50.53W
A great start to the trip averaging 6.3 kts but unfortunately the wind has dropped and the tide gone against us so we are down to a water speed of 4.5kts which with adverse tide is giving 3 kts over the ground. There has a been a little bit of commercial traffic which has been well behaved.The sea has gone very flat so I have taken the opportunity to download some pictures from my phone. I am only including one as I haven't quite got into using the sputnik phone.
Leaving Poole harbour.
The tide should go with us again at about 2200. Just about to heat up some home made soup in my new microwave.........
