    I think I ran into one of the rock charted just off the mainland. I do recall that I was still in a white sector, but I had not turned for the red can. I would like to claim fog, but perhaps just not seeing the R can in time.

    While itís nice to know that my Nav was not as far out as it might have first appeared, that doesnít excuse hitting land. Still plenty of lessons and I thank everyone for being constructive rather than condemning.

    Would I do the passage again, yes. Will I divert or stand off if night+fog+tired or any two of three, yep. So many lessons learned. Hopefully this will make me a better sailor.

    Good for you Phil. Plymouth Sound is a vast expanse of wonderful sailing water, but there are things that jump out and bite you if you're not prepared, LOL. Several yachts have, in the past, tried to sail right over the Breakwater, but none succeeded!

    Indeed one must not upset the Chinese on the 30th anniversary of the Tchienaman Sauare massacres.
