Finally after nearly 4 weeks since the incident, the work was completed and we returned to Newlyn on Tuesday 10th June to get ready to leave the following morning.

Many thanks go to both Newlyn Harbour Authority and the exceptional repairs carried out by Mounts Bay Engineering.  Particular thanks go to Dave, Dan and Cameron who would not let me have the boat back until they were of the opinion that they would sail around the UK.  Dan and the Harbour master are ex-Navy and gave us an impeccable service
