An afternoon sail to Penlee Point and back – Sun 12 Feb 23

Wind SE force 3 – 5, sea state slight to moderate and good visibility all resulted in an exhilarating sail out past Penlee Point and back to King Point Marina. On the way out we spotted one of the (unidentified) Daring Class destroyers anchored off Cawsand and on the way back, HMS Somerset followed us in towards the breakwater.

Chione took the surprisingly lumpy seas in her stride and with the first reef in the main and both headsails set, we tramped along between 5 – 6 knots. Back in behind the breakwater the sea state eased and we watched several landing craft head out to sea via The Bridge before Chione’s sails were furled and we headed back to King Point.
