V40-7 Plymouth with Allmans

Clare and Mike and Angus are onboard for a few days based in the Mayflower Marina in Plymouth. We are doing a couple of day sails.

28 May 2023

Out to Wembury Bay and back.

29 May 2023

Up the river to the bridges, past Devonport.

30 May 2023

On the ferry (not Molia) across to Mount Edgcumbe house and country park.

V40-6 Plymouth

Another short leg from Fowey to the Mayflower Marina in Plymouth.

The east wind (no good to man nor beast) continues to blow. So we are staying here for a week!

V40-2 Oxwich Bay

As Swansea do not open their lock 24 hours, we needed to anchor so that we had time to get to Padstow in the day, before they open their lock approximately 2 hours before high water. So we chose Oxwich Bay on the Gower. This has a good write-up on Navily for the wind direction forecast (NE).

V40 – Jersey

This is the big one for the year! Started today Thursday 18 May – we are aiming for Jersey in June, then back to Portishead at the end of July. Looking forward to welcoming all our crew guests on Molia, and to seeing all the people we are planning to meet along the way.

V40-1 Penarth

We have Tim P on board for the first few days. We hope to get him as far as Padstow.

Jo and Tim in the lock.

And we are off…

We had a great meal at the newly redecorated The Deck restaurant at Penarth – although Mark is still unable to understand BoatFolk’s latest reward points scheme 🙂

V38 – Fog on the Severn

We went out early in the morning, but the fog had not cleared on the river. Mark discovered that the AIS works much better when it is switched on! (It is now labelled on the panel.)

Nothing to see here!
