Maunie of Ardwall

Thu Feb 6 17:11 2020 NZDT
GPS: 50 14.243N 003 45.936W
Run: 11.8nm (21.4km)
Weather: Fair, ESE 15 knots, 8 degrees C, 1028mb

We're taking advantage of a couple of days' settled weather before Storm Ciara (with gusts of up to 75 knots) arrives on Saturday. We took the opportunity to sail round to Salcombe from Dartmouth and had a great 14nm passage.

Salcombe is always hugely busy in the summer, both on the water and in the town, so it's quite a novelty to find it almost deserted. This allowed us to moor on the Normandy Pontoon (so named because this was the departure point for over 60 large landing craft and thousands of American troops for the D-Day landings) so we can walk ashore to explore. We'll head back to Dartmouth tomorrow and there we'll secure Maunie with extra mooring lines to ready her for the storm.
