Falmouth harbour

While we're in Fowey the wind switched round to SW after many days of easterlies. However we felt it was time to move on. So we left at the beginning of a favourable tide on Thursday afternoon. After many hours of rather tedious sailing into a moderate head wind we finally arrived in Falmouth harbour at about 11pm. Not wanting to try manoeuvring in the marina after dark, we picked  up a buoy at St Mawes, on the east side of the harbour. This morning at first light we moved to a marina in Falmouth as Justin needed to get a train back to Kent.

Readers of this blog concerned for our hygiene will be relieved to know that the restrictions on showers due to Coronavirus enforced in Fowey do not seem to apply in Falmouth. Here, happily, showers are readily available for all the marina's customers.  After doing some general boat cleaning we were joined by Dave and Julie on Susan J. She has had many improvements over the last few years. The picture shows Susan J rafted up next to Bonita on the marina pontoon.
