The sixth and final day sailing of this leg takes our crews to their final destination: Plymouth. One of the most famous seafaring ports on the south coast, this Devonshire town is where our company director, Colin, went to naval college way back in the distant past (or the 1970s)! The short sail along the Polperro Heritage coast is nevertheless filled with beautiful views, great waters for sailing and some fabulous winds.
As Plymouth Yacht Haven came into view, our crews became very much aware of what they have achieved this week. Some on board have very little sailing experience, and yet have traversed some of the country's most beautiful coastline and negotiated the potentially treacherous Land's End on an overnight sail. The feeling is always rewarding, which may be why we have people joining us year after year for this cruise, and the friendships made on board are lasting.
Tomorrow there will be a cream tea organised with the help of our sponsors Tiptree Jam and Yacht Haven marinas. Is it cream or jam first? We shall see!
