Better to have 4 days of sun and calm on a nice yacht with booze than rain and calm. Had a cracking few days. Pretty much motored Plymouth, Fowey, Salcombe and Newton Ferrers. Think we drank them all dry each night!

Humber and wakeboard would have been fun!

Went to Whitby last weekend, forecast was "Smooth to slight" got there & found 2m breaking waves & a northerly 5-6. Still got a bucket full of Mackies though. I had to gut them in the outer harbour, I couldn't face gutting them out at sea, definitely getting a tad green around the gills after a couple of hours

Nice shot. Even the old man ventured out in the cardinal today so it MUST have been calm! ;-)
