Day 47 is brought to you by Sharky’s of Mablethorpe. Fun and entertainment for all ages!
Wrench of a start, leaving comfy bed and mod cons and back out in amongst it. Weather great though. A short cag day.
To start, a warm up paddle along pretty nondescript coastline to spurn head. The crossing to Donna Nook was short but I called it in with Humber coastguard given the amount of shipping traffic. The only event of note was a pilot boat heading right for me and doing so as I changed my course to try and avoid it. I was getting twitchy but it slowed down at the last moment. They just wanted to say hi. Great.
I was moving well, carving along the side wind again and knew I’d hit Donna Nook when I was surrounded by seals from the sanctuary.
The last section was a cruise to Mablethorpe, I couldn’t really fathom how I’d clocked the miles so effortlessly. Waiting on the beach for me was a generous family turnout. With help from the RLNI boys (respect), and Graham and David from Sharky’s Bar (peace) I found somewhere for the boat and I to stay, not together though.
A family meal to say goodbye to the Hull crowd, memorable garlic bread backed up with a scranny steak.
Tomorrow solo, I’m desperate to find bigger mileage again.
