V44-6 Padstow Bay to Penarth

99NM 0400-2230 18h30m (includes lock)

We decide to stay on the English side for a bit after Hartland Point – its a slightly longer track, but with the wind in the south, the fetch creating any waves is very small.

Rain sets in mid afternoon. It becomes heavy as we manoeuvre through the Cardiff Bay Barrage lock and the marina in Penarth. This is a difficult mooring in the dark and wet!

Drying Out in Penarth – July 27

After two consecutive early starts, and long days; and after the heavy rain yesterday, we stayed all of Thursday in Penarth.

A really excellent dinner at the Pilot Inn.
