Finally the winds have returned to more Southerly so we have returned to anchor off New Quay. Aberystwyth marina is lovely and quiet and extremely convenient for on shore facilities, I would highly recommend it to any visiting yacht. We nearly got caught out with the tides on departing, we lost all track out time with cooking and eating burgers with home made rolls. The marina say you can get in 2 hours either side of the high tide, we got out with 1.7m draft 2.5 hours after the high.
We motored all the way due to light headwinds but did manage to get the headsail up for a short time. Ffion provided the entertainment on the way down with her incredible vocal talents belting out numbers, especially from Pink, her favourite band.
New Quay did not dissapoint, providing a beautiful sunset as the RNLI returned to harbour from an exercise. We also had jellyfish and a shoal of small fish around the boat and dolphins in the distance.
Winds for the next week are predicted Southerly so I hope to be here a while.
