Having weathered a storm on the way in nature repeated itself. This time though we managed to get a through soaking twice on the little ferry between the islands. A round of cooked breakfasts in St. Mary’s helped lift the spirits again before the Scillonian III took us back to the mainland rather more gently than it had before. While on this voyage we overheard the Captain explain that the Harbourmaster had thought him mad to set out straight into Katia the previous week. He was clearly right, but thoughts of those YouTube videos came back.
SO with a curry back on the mainland and some tea and a shower - we were all pretty knackered and we had hoped to visit Poldhu the next morning, arguably the birthplace of radio communications on the way back to Wiltshire, but with an 80% chance of another soaking before hours in the car back, we decided to head back home.
