Furthest South and Newlyn

Having had a substantial breakfast in the excellent Fuel restaurant in Falmouth we felt ready to face the challenges of moving on. There wasn't much wind at first but we mostly motored to the Lizard, the most southerly point in the UK.  The picture shows Geoff concentrating on the steering with the Lizard behind him.
After that a little southerly breeze sprung  up. We got to Newlyn about 6pm. Predominantly a fishing harbour that is more accomodating to yachting as fishing continues to decline.
Here we found that Ricks in Recipe had got in before us. The picture shows the two boats together.

The weather over the next few days is not looking good - strong northerly winds predicted. So here we stay put until  at least we get a more promising forecast.
