We're still here waiting for a chance to cross to Falmouth. The weather yesterday was atrocious - pouring rain and a howling gale so we didn't leave the boat all day. We are going to stay today to let the sea die down as it will still be rough after the gales, then hopefully leave tomorrow when the wind is in a more favourable direction (should arrive on Friday).
If it stops raining we are going to go to the maritime museum which is in a chateau just above the marina.
I don't know if anyone remembers a French sailor called Eric Taberley who won loads of races in boats called Pen Duick. Well 4 of them were on show in the marina for the first few days we were here.
