Wed 1st Nov 2000

Leaving Charlestown was as exciting as was entering the place 5 weeks earlier. The harbour is locked, i.e. there is a lock gate at the exit to the inner harbour that is lowered at highest water to allow vessels to leave or enter.  Soren Larsen is too deep drafted to get out on neap tides so we had to leave on Wed 1st Nov .. or we'd be trapped there for a week...

Skipper Tony Davies had to negociate the exit from the right hand side of the inner harbour..

Soren turns and heads for Fowey as Tony's brother Robin Davies watches from the entrance wall.
