After a pleasant lunch and just after HW we headed back to the car via the Promenade which circles around the Mill Pond, past the Slipper sailing Club (below) on the way to the delightfully named Creek End.
This yacht was clearly taking water, being buffeted by the waves being whipped up on they're way across the harbour. It was well down on it's waterline and the movement was slow suggesting that it was slowly filling, hopefully the owners got to her before too much damage was done.
Out in the moorings the boats were bounding around in the wild conditions, while those in background were safely tucked up in the marina which is well protected from the westerly's.
Our route back around the harbour path was blocked, so we took the long and safe way around back to the car.
