Day on the Beach

With the wind now firmly from the SW, Maenporth was the destination for eight boats. The run down the passage became a good spinnaker broad reach / reach with a short beat onto the sand. Comparatively with other years the beach was quiet. The beach cafe had suffered a recent fire, and their substitute trailer provided great beach food. The beat back was lively and one capsize in the jaws of the Helford Passage proved the interesting wind. We arrived well after low tide and moved the boats off the beach in anticipation of tonight’s spring tide and F6.
