Tollesbury
I got to Tollesbury about 10am and met Paul, the manager for Tollesbury Saltings and Max, a friendly  Labrador who is, I think, really in charge. We looked at several berths but with Alison's broken toe the one on the path near the car park was the obvious ...

Ramsgate to West Mersea
No photos today. Was mostly a really dull day and when it did get nicer we were a bit busy. We got down to Robinetta yesterday afternoon. Separately as Alison wanted to get there early and I had to work in the morning. We had a nice dinner at the Thai resta...

NMEA Update
When we got back to Gosport the Raspberry Pi was broken. I've no idea how but it wouldn't boot and the yellow LEDs for the ethernet didn't light. When I got it home I connected it to the TV and it wasn't even trying to boot. I tried to bypass it so we could...

Dover to Ramsgate
 A short trip of about 15 nm. It would be nice to get all the way across the Thames but we couldn’t make that work. I think the way to do it would be to take the last of the ebb around South Foreland and then punch the weak tides inside Sandwich Bay to Rams...

Yarmouth to the Folly
We had so much room on the pontoon this morning that I could get the bowsprit out and the No 1 Jib on before we left. Alison backed out of the berth and then we had space to head straight out. Susan J had just come in and they said Carlotta and Ariana and M...

Visiting old haunts
We don't often post for days in port - its Robinetta's log. But today we visited on foot her home between 1946 and 1949. Audrey Parker's  Once Round The Land  ends with Robinetta arriving at her (new) own mooring in Castle Cove Portland so we wandered round...

**
I decided the best time to leave for Poole was about 1pm to fight the last of the weak inshore ebb to St Alban's Head and get the flood over the bank and round into Poole. Alison asked the Harbour folks and they said the tide was stronger and to leave early...

Light airs and Yachtsman’s Gales
Light airs and yachtsman’s gales is what we called our 2014 account of sailing up the east coasts of England and Scotland. It applied even better if possible to today. We left Treguier late on the ebb and had a nice motor down the river. For once there was ...

Paluden to Roscoff
We spent the morning on the boat doing maintenance and blogging. It was another lovely day. I fitted the new engine cut-off control cable. It is thicker than the old one and both ends needed adapting. At the engine end the new cable doesn’t fit in the fork ...

Found out last we are nominally in the 'small traditional pleasure boats' class which races tomorrow so we have a free-ish day today. Met with Solent & SW gaffers and arranged to meet on their raft at 6pm tonight. Cine Mara Ariana, Corncockle and Carlotta F...
