This is what much of Sharpness looks like
And this is the view across the estuary
After we filled with water at Sharpness, I had to do an unusual maneovre to get TQ away from the quayside because the wind was holding us against it. First I had to tie the bowline to a post on the quayside and release all other lines. then engage forward gear and full rudder to move the stern out into the canal with the bow pressed against the quay. When TQ was about 90 degrees to the quay Lin released the bowline, jumped on board and I engaged reverse gear and pulled away from the quay. About 30 feet out I engaged forward gear and full rudder and proceeded back toward Gloucester.
We're moored in exactly the same place as the night before last, just South of Llanthony Bridge on the G & S Canal.
Tomorrow is going to be a gruelling journey, all the way up the Severn to Worcester, 30 miles upstream.
