Atlantic Fun off the North Coast of Cornwall

Fantastic day today - cant believe there was only the two of us out.

Those that decided not to come - how foolish you were.

85 miles with the Atlantic rolling swell made a refreshing change from wafting around in the English Chanel.

Thanks to Bob and Sue for the help launching with their 4X4.

I guess one day another boat might join us on one of our adventures !!!

Unfortunately I did not have my video camera - I think Bob took a small amount of video - not sure if any of it came out though.

I certainly did - and its that which I'm hoping Bob has some video of.

I spent quite a bit of time chasing the back of a wave in towards the beach until it started to break then turned around and jumped my way back out through the set. Bob and Sue said my prop was more than 2 feet clear of the water on a couple of the jumps - but I'm afraid I don't have the photos to show for it.

I got some real funny looks from the surfers though - I don't think they liked me being in so close.

I have been up close to a lot of coastline in my time and not much beats that part of Cornwall .
South coast was also pretty lumpy today not such a big swell or surf but bloody uncomfortable ,very choppy
Had a scary moment also , went inside the surf break for the first time with the family and showed them how easily the sib would get through the surf , came over the last one of a set almost outside shut the throttle and the motor stopped , wen't again first pull but the missus went very quiet .
