The Semaine du Golfe for 2011 is due to take place between 30th May and 5th June. Travelling to the event is the owner of the Mevagissey Tosher, ‘Wild Goose’, along with his boat and crew. They left her on my drive last night, as a place of refuge, before continuing today to Portsmouth for the cross-channel ferry to Saint Malo, from where they will hope to make it by road to the Morbihan.
Tosher number 27 registered at Falmouth, but based at Tollesbury, is a fibreglass version built in 1975. She worked the waters of Falmouth for around 20 years and continues to be registered for fishing today.
