The crew took pity on the passengers and returned to port after barely 0.5 mile. When I returned home through Dartmouth I overheard two of the riverboat shore crew complaining that this vessel had not made the passage as they had passenger bookings for it from Dartmouth.
Later, the Clipper taking sightseers out for the sailing trawler race showed just how choppy it was.
