The kids have been brilliant as we’ve fought our way down the West Coast to Falmouth in Cornwall. The wind direction hasn’t played ball and we’ve been forced to motor-sail most of the way – throw in an engine hiccup & faulty roller fuller & you’ve got some fun and games!! Mostly though the kids have been great – occupying themselves down below while at sea and ready to make new friends in each new port. The best new game is climbing the mast in the brand new bosuns chair (the old one was more than 30 years old & Mum was being a bit precious!) Stella has made it to the first spreaders & Fin isn’t too far behind (but still a little scared) – it won’t be long until they are at the top – eek!!!
Favourite stops: Falmouth, Helford, Salcombe
