Yet another fantastic cruise by those who sailed west. A few first photos now added to the Gallery. Weather and sea conditions very good, overnight anchoring at Crawsands, into the tiny Polperro harbour and staying in Fowey harbour with dinner at both the Gollant and Royal Fowy Yacht clubs and a trib upriver to the Gallont pub for afternoon tea. Nine days of great sailing & company. Next year probably something a little different.
