Cruise Notes: Planned cruise out to Stangate Creek with Cymantha, Stewart & Toby. Steady motor out with an opportunity to open up Kevaylings engines and blow out some cobwebs. Had to make three attempts at setting the anchor in the creek but finally got a good hold then settled down to lunch. After a good lunch in tranquil surroundings lifted anchor and headed home at a steady 6kts at in st the tide. Brilliant days cruise.
