Small potatoes alongside the great blogs here, but for Roger and me, a week chartering ‘Cacique’ [a Vancouver 27 that has already been round the world] was our first tentative cruising steps ‘alone’.
Fortunately the weather was spectacularly kind, although, as it was our first outing in the area, we still kept five miles off when rounding Start Point.
We even met up with another Vancouver 27 [Jenny & Carl’s beautiful ‘Vanity’] at Salcobmbe and again in Dartmouth.
Massive thanks to Jaimie [Cacique’s proud owner] from whom we had chartered. We did our best to look after his beautiful ‘pocket cruiser’ and return her in at least as good condition as when we had picked her up.
PS …. the following week’s weather was not so kind; we had been so, so lucky !!
