|Free sailing at SYC
||A really steady F3 to F4 wind made for some great sailing on bank holiday Monday. The sea fog cleared intermittently to even give some sun. The average moving speed of 5 knots is none to shoddy for a 30 year old beaten up Wayfarer.
|April Free Sailing
||A pleasant sail back and forth across the estuary. Started about F4 gusting F5 so we went out with one reef. Wind eased so we shook out the reef. The offshore lifeboat came up the river.
|SYC safety boat
||Safety boat for free sailing day at SYC
|Free Sailing Safety Boat
||Doing safety boat for a Free Sailing at SYC on a lovely summer's afternoon. A pleasant F3 with the occasional gust made for almost ideal sailing conditions with just a few things to keep us slightly busy. A surprising overall distance as we spent the first 15 minutes at anchor (and expected to remain there for much of the afternoon!)
|Breakfast at Mylor
||Walk with wife and hound to Mylor for some breakfast. Then along to watch the kids from Restronguet Sailing Club playing "how many times can you capsize a Mirror" in the F5ish winds
