I was reading with interest and pleasure the article on YM about a family sail up the Tamar and Lynher on Captain Bligh's sailing dinghy.

At some point the writer (a self-confessed Plymouth sailor, of Vendee Globe experience) mentions something like "... little known anchorage called Dandy Hole", or words to that effect.

Call me biased, but to me Dandy Hole is one of the best known and famous anchorages of the whole region. I wonder if that was a slip of the pen, or whether is should really have been "Well known"?

Does YM employ any knowledgeable editors? ;)

They could have asked our very own Rev, who monitors the probity of these electronic pages; I am sure he would have spotted the mistake.

I believe the digital space is what exists inside your sailing gloves.

I was thinking that the main driver for working for TI Media would be the opportunity to see the inside of Tharg's spaceship but I see they relocated in 2007.

Possibly a "tongue in cheek" comment by the writer that has sailed over your head?

What's the best anchor to use at Dandy Hole?

That's a powerful imagination you have there, JD, specially for this time of the morning!

Actually, I stole it from Old Harry, more or less. I think it was originally someone overheard in a railway carriage saying "I flogged her across the Buxey and then took her up the Swinge".

It's probably like most other remuneration packages i.e. a basic salary, a potential bonus and some taxable non-cash benefits. :)
I'm an engineer I need numbers.

Looking at the advert in the link I would be interested when I stop doing the day job as long as the holidays are long and they don't mind emails from different places on the planet.

I must admit to creeping a bit too near the edge of the 'hole' to keep away from a boat anchored right in the middle. and then putting out a bit too much chain (by about 4 metres) on one occasion last summer.

I awoke at dawn, poked my head out of the cabin, and found myself about boat hook distance away from a steep mud bank.

Memo to self: on first visit this year, row ashore and paint a white mark on the dead tree on the south bank about half way along for a clear anchor bearing...
