The English Raid was great fun. We got there a few days early as we had a flat booked at Mylor Harbour. That meant we could sail out amongst the Tall Ships, which were parading and then setting off for London. Absolutely wonderful to see and sail right in the midst of these huge ships and cutters.
The Raid was god fun, with light hearted racing around Carrick Roads, with picnics ashore and cream teas at the seaside Pandora Inn at Restronguet. The weather was fabulous. Sunny and breezy in the day and sunny and calm in the evening. Only slight disappointment was that we didn't go down to the Helford River, as the east wind would have made it hard for the smaller boats.
Brought Daisy G home. Decided it wasn't worth launching back at Poole for just a couple of weekends at the most. So the winter tinkering season is about to get underway.
