First out was the Dart Venturer attempting to make the passage around the coast to Dartmouth, about 8-9 nautical miles. There were a few hardy souls on board.

The crew took pity on the passengers and returned to port after barely 0.5 mile. When I returned home through Dartmouth I overheard two of the riverboat shore crew complaining that this vessel had not made the passage as they had passenger bookings for it from Dartmouth.

Later, the Clipper taking sightseers out for the sailing trawler race showed just how choppy it was.
