Ore Stone and back - Chaos 2015-09-26 Trial SYC "race" from Exe safe water mark, round the Teignmouth outfall buoy, round the Ore Stone and back to the Exe SWM. A really great day's sailing. Relaxed and sunny on the downwind leg to the Ore Stone and really good sailing on the upwind leg back to the Exe SWM. The wind moved round a little to the east on the way back making (for us) a straight line sail; pretty much all the way back. The "Chaos" in the title refers the the race's putative title - "CHase Around the Ore Stone"
Round Chagford 2015-11-09 The plan was do walk some of the high moor from Frenchbeer Rock but when we got there it was just too windy and damp. So instead we retreated to Chagford and did a lower level moor walk around Chagford.
Dinghy sail to Dawlish 2013-08-10 Down from SYC, to the fairway buoy and on to the little harbour at the far end of Dawlish.
Out to the fairway buoy 2018-07-28 A windy sail - as expected. We went out just past the fairway buoy but as it was very gusty - 31 knots / mid force 7 - we snuck back in just before the tide got too low to return to the mooring.
Dogmarsh Bridge to Fingle Bridge 2015-03-28 With Liz and Julian from Dogmarsh Bridge to Fingle Bridge. Wedding at pub at Fingle Bridge meant no river side drinkies. Wedding ring finger got bitten by something again - finger badly swollen but not anywhere near as painful as last time (but only just got the wedding ring off before the swelling was too great).
Dogmarsh Bridge Fingle Bridge 2015-10-19 Along the Teign Valley as the trees start to change colour for the autumn. We've done this walk a few times before but it was unusual this time due to the "art in the woods" (see the photos) and Castle Drogo being completely covered in scaffolding and tarpaulins.
Dogmarsh Bridge to Fingle Bridge 2013-01-13 Along the Teign Valley below Castle Drogo. First sun in weeks but it doesnt get high enough to reach the floor of the gorge. Scooby celebrated by going AWOL for 5 minutes.
Up to buoy 45 2017-08-19 Quite a "feisty" sail as the weather did pretty much what was forecast - which was F4 gusting F5. They were fairly big gusts on the way out. Ran aground near the Turf Locks - whoops - and mutinous crew made the captain get out and push us off.
Liz's first safety boat drive 2018-08-25 Liz's first safety boat drive since getting her "Power Boat 2" training. An out to sea dinghy cruise - out as far as the fairway buoy anyway.
