Two hours sleep and we are up at 0015 on Sunday morning. Or is it Saturday night? The wind has dropped and we have a small window for Lundy. The tide is out and its springs. We have a very long and bumpy walk to the sea shore with boats and kit. The next challenge is launching through the surf in the dark, not easy as you can't see the waves until they break. We get out back without incident and the strong spring tide whisks us up the coast. The crossing goes as planned and without incident. One last challenge of the day is carrying all our gear up the hill to the camp site, its a killer and makes the paddle seem easy.

After its a long paddle straight across to Lamoran cove.
For lunch and after applying a second generous helping of sun cream we crack on to Falmouth.
We end the day on a little beach near Swanpool.

We have wind, tide and an 8 foot swell against us today. The going is slow, an average speed of 2.5 notts. It takes us 5 hours to get to looe. At looe we get lucky and score a shower at Looe gig club and we store our boats there overnight. Thanks to James for that.

Moved out of the campsite today. We will sleep in rame gig club tonight so we can make a move in the morning. Everyone we have met in Cawsand and at the maker campsite have been so good to us giving us lifts with our gear to and from the campsite and storing our boats. It would be easy to stay here, but we must move on.
