Finally got the Mirror to Snape on a perfect day's sailing and a high tide! Even got a tow part way to Aldborough before the wind kicked in and then hammered up the ever smaller channel towards the bacon butties at the pub. The journey home was eventful too. I was skimming over mudflats at 5 knots with only inches under the Mirror. I left my companions in a Cornish Crabber behind when they tried to cut some corners too - on a falling tide... Don't do it!!!!
18 Nautical Miles under sail, 5 hours sailing and a 2-mile tow at 6 knots.  A good day sailing.Photo of Owl at Ipswich park.
