50:32.51N 04:56.28W We creep out at first light, pleased to be fully mobile again.  The wind is brisk and we make excellent progress, close-hauled with double reefed sails, but Juniper seems to be on a mission.  We see dolphins and porpoises, and Gordon has the privilege of seeing a dolphin jump completely out of the water in a full arc.  We arrive early and have to wait for the tidal gate but eventually we’re rafted up in Padstow inner harbour, busy, bustly and gloriously sunny.
