    Went up to Dandy Hole -1 on a good tide and anchored up in strong E winds. Had a little success holding (although admittedly using a less than reliable Britany anchor) and the swell coming through was very uncomfortable. Could completely see the appeal in decent conditions, but not so much in the rough stuff.

    Beautiful quiet anchorage out in the English countryside. Very shallow water on the approach. If you have a deep keel you should only go at around high water plus/minus an hour or so. A 15-20 minute dinghy ride upstream takes you to the town of St. Germans. Where there are a few pubs, post office (open 7 days) and shop. Also the beautiful Quay sailing club who are very friendly. If you have a bilge keel or can take the ground you could come right up to the club. St. Germans probably warrants is own report.
