    The pleasure craft off Brixham were getting bounced around a little this morning. Never mind, if they sank the Torbay lifeboat wasn't too far away https://www.photographerslounge.org...swers-shout-call-out-choppy-conditions-10063/

    First out was the Dart Venturer attempting to make the passage around the coast to Dartmouth, about 8-9 nautical miles. There were a few hardy souls on board.

    Was it a wise idea?

    Perhaps not. In the distance the Brixham sailing trawler Vigilance

    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.

    No cropping of any pictures.

    I think the sea faring types would call me a land lubber
