This the Barrel Rock at the entrance to Bude Haven, North Cornwall at 1445 this afternoon.
High water was 1334, the wind is south west, force 6-7.
This coast stretches North-South. Due west is Newfoundland, Canada.
This is not a coast for a small boat on a day like today, but there was a time when the choices were different.
