Torquay to Plymouth

Having diverted to Torquay our day 2 was a bit longer that had we gone into Dartmouth or Salcombe. Light airs gave us the opportunity to hoist Molia’s spinnaker.

Today we rigged the pole downhaul forward onto a block attached to a strop between the two forward mooring cleats. The downhaul is then lead to the cockpit in place of the first reefing line. This arrangement was not ideal as the downhaul then has to be adjusted whenever the pole is moved forwards or backwards.

See: Plymouth to Fowey for a better pole downhaul arrangement.

We had an excellent meal at The Bridge restaurant located in the Yacht Haven.
