The Three Buccaneers

Another beautiful morning - is Spring really here?

The crane arrived for 9am and the first of the three Buccaneers - Cosmo's Mariner - began to lift from her winter hardstanding ...

She was loaded onto the trailer and taken down to the far end of the harbour ...


where she was lowered into the water ...

It was now the turn of Lily's Pride to be raised ...

and over into the harbour ...

Finally it was Fanta-Si being lifted ...

and swung over ...

and into the water ...


A big cheer went up as this was her first time afloat and there were several comments about where was the champagne??!!

She was taken for a short spin and then returned to take up a mooring ...

followed by the Good Fortune which had been out on the tide this morning ...

Unfortunately Cosmo's Mariner had snagged a line and so the owner had to don a wet suit and diving gear ...

and as we left he was still underwater and trying to clear his propellor ...

Nice to see the sun shining for a change. Hope to be down in June, trying to book accommodation at the Dolphin B&B. Perhaps we can catch up with a coffee if you are around.

Oh How I wish I was in Portreath today, the weather was so lovely. Let's just hope it's this nice for the rest of the summer! :) XX
