Day 75 (19/7/13) Padstow to St Ives Bay (31/1587nm)
Depart 1500, Arrive 2030.
WindE F2 to 4. Sunny. Motored and sailed last 3 hours.
Anchored in St Ives Bay. Uncomfortable sea swell for most of the night.
Day 76 (20/7/13) St Ives Bay to St Mary’s (Scilly Isles) (45/1632nm)
Depart 0600, Arrive 1230.
Wind E F4 to F6. Sunny. Sailed goose- winged almost the entire distance. By 1200 the 20kt wind had built a very large swell around the entrance to St Mary’s Sound making the entrance challenging. As the harbour was full we anchored nearby amongst fifty other yachts. The largest number seen in many years according to the Harbour Master.
