When you come out of Weymouth keep very close to the nose of Portland Bill, about 100 metres, to avoid the tide race - otherwise you my have to go several miles out depending on the tide. The waer is deep close in and it's a great way to go.

When you get to Dartmouth go up the river, lots of good creeks and you can get all the way up to Totnes on the tide - it's a lovely river.

Hope you lot are having more success with your sailing!

Marianne,

Cool blog! I am also new to "cruiserlog", I am sure you will find all the support and info you need right here, I'm really glad I found it. It's nice to know that today's technology has brought something good with it, like the ability to meet new people and friends all over the world who support and enjoy a common interest.

Sounds like you have a great boat, looks like alot of fun! I often wish I would have started smaller, I would be "out there" by now. Keep it simple, you'll have more fun! Hope the winds change in your region. Good luck and Tight sails (But not too tight!) Marianne...

Steve

Hello from land locked Berkshire! I'm back on dry land and have finished adding photos to the blog of the strange boat swapping adventure that my holiday turned into. It all went a little funny...but in a good way...

Enjoy!

Here's way it all started going perculiar: http://jumblies.wordpress.com/page/2/

Thanks for the up-date Marianne. Always interesting reading.

Is Tern laid up now for the winter or will you get some more sailing in before we reach bleak mid-winter?

We're hoping to get out and about for a couple more weekends before the end of the year, we'll see if we can persuade the weather to agree with us.. (windwise it's been all or nothing this year) When we lay her up we may well trailer the boat back up here so I can have my chaingang of enthusiastic children sand down some sections of the boom and mast (what a great neighbourhood I live in!)

If they have any enthusiasm left after having done that let me know please. I can offer work, work, work and work to them plus the odd bag of crisps and a soft drink or three.
