Par to Falmouth

Had an opportunity to get the boat wet for one last time before the school holidays descend so decided to make the best of it. Launched at Par and headed west past Mevagissey and onto Mylor via Falmouth, hadn't been in the Carrick Roads for a while and was great to do so again, Lunch at Mylor, nosed around Falmouth docks then return. 60 nm round trip. Weather superb on the day (unlike now)

1 Launch at Par
2. St.Austell
3. Mevagissey
4. Heaven!
5. St.Mawes

You're still under the influence now, look at those pic's again, remember that lovely hot sunny THURSDAY?

No didn't get to Helford, saw your searider tied up in Mylor and was planning some mischief, then noticed the Yamaha engine!

The mooring guy left us with a rowing punt to get out to the mooring. With a very gusty NNW blowing straight down the river I nearly pulled my farting clapper out getting out there. The second I eased off, we were heading out to sea. The SR had to be bailed free of rain water, beef jerky packets, milkshake and wine bottles.
I let the BF warm for a good while before dropping the mooring. If she'd conked, we would've been in trouble fairly quickly.
Anyway, home now with the baby barnacles removed.

Didn't envy you that given the conditions, wouldn't have been a problem if the Honda had conked out, we could have just amended the thread title to 'Par to Falmouth to Cherbourg'
