|Dawn on Saturday 29th|
I rose at the crack of dawn to make use of the early flood tide. There was no wind, but the scenery was stunning, particularly as the sun rose.
|We had berths alongside a new (to me) jetty|

|The evening was spent in good company, aboard Salford, one of the boats from the Coastal Exploration Company. Here, a rather reluctant fire was slowly cooking sausages whilst participating skippers and crew drank grog.|
Early the following morning, we left at sunrise, taking the return tide to Wells. Winds had freshened to F5 W, daunting at first, but perfect for the return trip.

|Return to Wells|
|Yellow track: early morning tide, 29th June, 5,8nm; |
red track: afternoon trip to Scolt Head Island, 6.8nm;

Altogether, 18.1 nm.
