‘Ladybird’s’ 2010 Cruise Photo Selection – Part 2
I took this photo of Simon Renton at Salcombe. He was attempting to sail around Britain in a Wayfarer dinghy to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. His latest blog is dated 14th May, 2011. I know that he ran into difficulties with adverse weather during his 2010 attempt, and had to give up.
As I write this blog, Simon has raised £3,387.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support – see his Just Giving webpage. (Link below)
Last year ‘British Steel’ was in a miserable state when I took this photo at Dartmouth. The good news is that a group of enthusiasts are restoring her.
Here is a Troy class yacht I saw off the entrance to Fowey.
The Starcross/Exmouth ferry was a familiar sight as I lay to a mooring at Starcross.
