Faro to Falmouth – Day 12

Friday 19th August 2022

0100 hrs

Lat: 49° 48.77 'N Long: 004° 49.70 'W

Up on deck for my last watch at sea of the trip. The Cornish coastline could be seen and the welcome flash of familiar lighthouses.

0700 hrs

Lat: 50° 09.17'N Long: 005° 03.70'W

Arrived and tied up at Port Pendennis Marina, time for breakfast before cleaning the boat from stem to stern.

Following a shower, I am not impressed with the facilities given the reputation of the place, we headed up to Falmouth Docks rail station, purchased our tickets and jumped on the next train to Truro where we changed trains for all points east. Dan and Stuart got off at Plymouth as they wanted a London bound train and I continued to Exeter.
