Interesting Day in Falmouth

First off I caught a skateboard in the Port engine But I didn't take any pictures as I was just so happy to have not suffered any damage though the skateboard has a gash on one side.

Then when passing Mylor we saw a yacht who obviously had not checked his chart before anchoring.

And Finally Behind Gylyngvase Beach at Falmouth there was a house on fire.

If the tide had been a bit higher you could have done some high speed turns and swamped the house!!!

Maybe you should have done it to the yacht instead - teach em a lesson!!!

Talk about adding insult to injury

Alex, do disasters usually follow you around?

Yeh, particularly low tides just now. They obviously don't read Ribnet.

That is one hell of a nice looking yacht - bet it's equipped with all the electronic navaids known to man!!!!

Maybe it's got a lifting keel and the up and down buttons are the wrong way around???????
