Now in Weymouth for a 3 day break

posted 28 Aug 2015, 11:26 by Dominic Thwaites

I've written up my last two passages. Passage 41 includes a wonderful discovery day on the Devon coast and passage 42 was a 55 mile lovely sail to Weymouth. I'm staying here for the long weekend with my wife who is coming down to visit me. I'll get going again on Monday or Tuesday,

Last 3 passage notes posted up

Better put the kettle on. You’ve lots to catch up on. Passage 34 ended in a gale but describes the wonderful 3 days I had in Fishguard. Passage 35 involved two tricky tidal gates and Passage 36 was huge. 16 miles in 27.5 hours. Dolphins galore.

Now in the heart of Belfast

Passage 29 takes me to a marina in the middle of Belfast, facilitating sightseeing. I've written up passage 27 and passage 28 that took me out of Scotland. Watch out for Passage 29 notes that will include my Belfast experiences.
