Day 8


A comfortable but slow day but we finally ‘tipped our hats’ to the Bishop at 23.30.  As we passed the Bishop the stars were out, the dolphins were leaping in the phosphorescence but the wind died so we had to motor for 3 hours into Mounts Bay.  AIS kept us on our toes all night as ships came and went at all angles.  It’s now drizzling and we’re feeling our way along to the Lizard in poor visibility.  Welcome back to the UK!!  But we are on target to arrive in Plymouth late afternoon. No emergency spam needed on this trip!!!
