An idyllic anchorage and a rescue at sea

Our last night in the Scilly Isles was spent at anchor in St Helen's Pool, between the inhabited islands of Tresco and St Martin's but surrounded by rocks and uninhabited islands.

The return passage to Falmouth was fantastic - a very long spinnaker reach with some top speeds. The skipper needed a light snack just to keep his strength up:

Positively flying along!
