Yealm Passage Race

The Yealm Passage Race from Jennycliff Bay, around the Mew Stone to Newton Ferrers Yacht Club, took place under pretty perfect conditions on 1st June.  This annual event in aid of the RNLI was rounded off as ever, with a sumptuous spread of sandwiches and cake.  (We were actually offered a glass of wine too, after we had a slight altercation with the quay side of one of the houses, where the family had been enjoying a nice peaceful afternoon in the sun!)


Lovely Lesvos

A cold first week, with onshore winds and dumpy waves, then a warmer second week with no wind!  Ah….Greece.  With plenty of great off road cycling, we clocked up around 160 miles and got to see the beautiful surroundings from Skala Eresou; Eressos, Mesotopus, Tavari and Sigri.  Also some encounters with the more unusual local wildlife – dolphins – hurrah, snakes (although most likely the European Glass Lizard) and a scorpion!  And lastly more of the gorgeous colours and Skala ‘Greekfiti’.

Stunning Scilly

Not content with one holiday in March, I went for two and what a contrast.  From the cityscapes and bustle of Japan to the practically deserted gleaming white sands and turquoise seas of Scilly, admittedly with a bit of hailstorm dodging thrown in.  It appears that the constant of the UK, Holland and Japan was the wind!
