This afternoon we departed Wynyard at 1400, just before high water, and are on our way to Devonport where we should arrive around 2000. 

We have enjoyed a pleasant stay in Wynyard, particularly the hospitality of a couple of local yachties, Bruce and Rod, and the skipper of a fishing boat berthed immediately in front of us, Anthony.  Rod generously provided us with a chart of the Tamar River and a large pile of fresh apples.  There are too many apples for us to eat so Kate is turning some of them into an apple crumble.  And I have to thank Anthony for helping me jerry can some fuel back to Sylph from the nearby service station in his ute.

All is well.
