Vessel astern of us, one red light and masthead. Power driven, port aspect, so why is the bearing staying constant?
Daylight shows an old style sailing vessel astern with wooden light boards in the shrouds, and they are angled just off line so you wont be able to see red and green at the same time!
If she had got really close to us I reckon you might find a position where neither light would show!
Handed over to Chris and Liz as we entered Mounts Bay and laid off a course for the Lizard, time to sleep
Came back up on deck as we got there and then carried on for the Start Point, lots of names that I’ve heard about before but have never seen from the sea.
Not due to take over for an hour or so but can’t get back to sleep.
Time to cook some breakfast, bacon butties anyone?
