Rounding the Lizard point
Small overfalls but nothing troublesome. I saw from my AIS that there were some yachts ahead, so called one of them via their DSC system to ask about sea state, so we decided to come right in to only 1nm off the rocks. You can see the Lizard coastguard station where I enjoyed many childhood holidays. The fog horn makes your lungs resonate when it is operating in foggy conditions.. No fog today, superb visibility. Time for tea... And a careful watch for more lobster pots and over falls as the tide moves from current slack to the foul tide that collides with the water coming round the Lizard headland from other way.
