I picked 3 teenagers out of a sinking dinghy on the doom bar this afternoon while coincidentally waiting there for the Padstow lifeboat to come in for a display 20 mins later. They were wearing life jackets but the combination on 3 guys in a small boat in rough water overwhelmed the small dinghy. They were lucky we saw them. We got to them just as they abandoned the boat, they were cold and a tad scared naturally. No parents in sight..

We managed to salvage the sail, rudder etc and lift the dinghy over the tubes and drop them off on a nearby beach. Gusting F8, no place for inexperience.

My 4 and 6 year olds who are lifeboat fanatics got to witness their first real rescue and my 4 yr old hinted ,as the real lifeboat went past, that we had rescued more than they had today.

something for show and tell next term....

Bummer ... we made two very calm return trips Falmouth to Fowey in the prior two weeks. Not as flat as your OP photos but getting there. Dolphins too
