Settled fine and warm weather enable this little craft to be enjoyed to the full and what a blast it is on the water. 20 knots feels quite fast enough. The first video shows me and Andrew planing along the coast from Teignmouth to the Parson & Clerk stack of red sandstone and along the exposed rail line that is hving to be strengthened at Dawlish by loads of ugly concrete walls. The engineering of which is quite inferior to Brunel's original masonry. At intervals of approximately 20 feet the use of rubber expansion inserts have been used all along the wall so far built. Those rubber inserts are already degraded and hanging loose all along the wall where recent storms have hit.
Soon I am off to Brixham and across Torbay past the Arcadia and Queen Victoria liners moored up and polluting the atmosphere and emptied of the bow tie brigade and cocktail gowned guests.
Seals were basking on the rocks near here
Landing on the deserted beach and looking for some shade - but there was none.
Still waters edge this deserted cove
30 degrees or more of heat - It was here that a yacht carrying illegal immigrants was found in distress only eighteen months ago. The crew are now serving time in prison.
