Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday, 11 February 2021

Hake netter Ajax steams from Brest to Newlyn in south easterly gale.

 


After fishing south of Mounts Bay for hake the netter Ajax decided to land her trip straight to the French market at Brest which involved a 100 mile steam back in an easterly then south easterly gale making for 12 hours of non-stop rock ' roll for Chunky and the boys...




and things weren't any better by the time they reached Newlyn - after a three hours dodging in the bay to wait for the tide to flood enough before they sped in through the gaps...


to find a berth, preferably one with fenders.
