She will be open for visitors on the 26th, 27th and 28th of July.
Return TripAs we are entering a period of low neap tides Shamrock will be returning to Cotehele Quay on Monday the 29th's morning tide, the last day of the rally. This is to ensure that there is sufficient water at Cotehele to enable her to dock on arrival. She is due to leave Sutton Harbour at 07:15 (another earlier start) and should arrive at Cotehele Quay about 11:30.
Question?What's the result of a few weeks of sunshine followed by a night of heavy rain? Answer, lots of water in Shamrocks bilges.
On opening up Shamrock this morning one of the bottom boards was found to be floating, no electric pump so back to the scoop and bucket. About 100 bucketfuls!! So much for the gentle cruise.
