Our First West Country Odyssey
From the river Hamble to Fowey, Cornwall and back
19th April 2019 by Martin
This was our first opportunity to take Anika on a longer cruise. With all the Brexit stuff going on we decided to head west along the English south coast and just see how far we get before having to turn back east towards home.
Thanks to a combination of special public holidays and time off from work we had a total of 18 days for our first West Country Odyssey.
Day 1 - River Hamble to Yarmouth, IOW
And we’re off! After what feels like weeks of preparation we are ready for day 1 of our “West Coast Odyssey”. We’re starting off with a short sail from the Hamble River to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. Very busy on Southampton Water with a big cruise ship to avoid. Ended the day moored up on buoy outside Yarmouth, enjoying watching people trying to pick up buoys. It’s always a great spectator sport.
