Scillies to Camaret 22/23 July

frankly another long boring passage: 130nm totally on motor 🙁

We amused ourselves by watching passing ships on the radar and AIS and sometimes we just watched them on the radar…..

Sailing by moonlight is always a pleasure and this pic was taken by Andrew off Ushant ( Isle de Ouessent)

in fact we had to reduce speed a bit to ensure we arrived at the entrance to Chenal de la Helle in time for the favourable stream.

Things got a bit trickier after that as described in this post

The start of the route was interesting – the quirk in the lower part of the route was courtesy of a visit to the Turks Head pub on St Agnes for lunch. Worth a visit.tresco-camaret start

Rest of the passage. Shows tidal effect as we crossed.
