Day 73 Beating to Fowey 15/08/16

With an Easterly wind we fought our way to Fowey past Dodman point.As the crow flies the distance is only 22 miles but beating into wind this would be over 30 miles and being slowed by the waves took us over 8 hours.

Fowey is a beautiful entrance, accessible for 24 hours with no significant difficulties. 

We picked up a mooring just in time to witness the Fowey regatta fireworks display.
