Exploring the Fal and Truro rivers, under sail

Had a very nice meal last night at the Shipwrights Arms in Helston. Lobster salad was good (and a bit lavish), and Michael’s monkfish was really lovely.
We had a pint there, and then wandered on the Helford River Sailing Club for another drink, sitting on their terrace looking out over the estuary. Lovely spot, and the sun was shining.

Today we sorted out some water (and trash) at the HRSC before sailing across to Falmouth, We stopped on Peter’s buoy for lunch a short snooze, before getting the sails out and sailing up the Fal and Truro, which are beautifully tree lined. We had to motor for a bit to cope with the King Harry Ferry. We ended up on a floating visitors pontoon, just round the bend and downstream of Malpas. Really peaceful here, with the exception of the add boat travelling from Truro to Falmouth. Ate on board tonight, sitting the cockpit: and as we started to eat a gentle shower passed, which gave the meal a ‘camping’ experience, as the rain pattered onto the sprayhood.
