A memorable time for the family which we did not regret.The tide was running out fast in the Zandreek. so we went aground not exactly where we would have wished!. No problem with an Atalanta and we prepared to spend the night in our cosy arch until next high tide. What an intent moment when we woke up to see the sunrise and watch the water rising quickly under the double keel. We were free to move on.

Lovely post – the essence of Atalanta cruising
Great photos. Thank you for posting them. They sum up so many of the attractions of the Atalanta – shoal draft, ability to dry out, family sailing.
