Well, we left our temporary berth in Town Quay Southampton on Saturday morning and made the 23 ½ hr sail to Plymouth, our new home for the foreseeable future, well when I say sail, we actually motorsailed ¾ of the way and only really sailed the last bit from Start Point to Plymouth harbour, as there was little wind both during the day and overnight. We had decided to do it in one hit rather than stop as we didn’t want the hassle of stopping in different ports on the way down, we had confirmed our intentions with HMS Coastguard about our plans, as well as discussions with border Force. so the journey was Logged with the necessary authorities.
We have manged to get a berth in the Mayflower Marina in Plymouth, its right up into the harbour and is a 20 mins walk from amenities
Devon & Cornwall are areas of the UK that we whistle-stopped toured last time we were here, so now we’ve got some new and exciting cruising grounds for summer 2020, including hopefully the Silly Islands.
