Keen to explore more of the Isles of Scilly before needing to carry on the with the journey to Porto we switched anchorages to St Helens pool, and anchorage that should be protected from all directions of swell.
Our current anchorage of the Eastern Isles also didn’t look great for the coming days.
Our little hop took us out, and counter clockwise (west) along the top of the Isles. There wasn’t much wind, and the sails were quite flappy, but we needed to move!
This anchorage was quite beautiful, as you can see the open ocean to the north, east and west, yet the swell doesn’t reach you due to the shallows.
And absolutely stunning sunsets.
