A Quiet Sail - Plymouth Sound

As the weather was quiet and I wanted some 'reacquainting' myself with the boat, giving me time to listen to what sounds she made and pull sails up and down with no or little pressure of wind I took Aphrodite out for a sail on the seaward side of the breakwater. Nothing dramatic, just the feel of a gentle breeze in the sails, the sun on my face was just what was needed and perhaps a workout of sailing muscles. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Crew: Sandy Garrity ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Weather: Inshore waters forecast to 12 miles offshore 01:00 (UTC+1) on Tue 8 Jun 2021 to 01:00 (UTC+1) on Wed 9 Jun 2021 Lyme Regis to Lands End including the Isles of Scilly 24 hour forecast: Southerly or southwesterly, becoming variable at times mainly in east, 2 to 4.
