Whaler Trip April 6-9 1963 776 viewsSetting off from St Angelo Camber.
Photos from Brian Fuller/Jon Haylock.
The trip took four days in all and the first was spent in reaching up the coast to Paradise Bay where we camped for the night. On the second morning we sailed from Paradise Bay to Mgarr in Gozo via the South and North Comino Channels.
After lunch at Mgarr we reached down to Golden Bay where we said adios to Cdr. Des Clayes and camped for the night. On the third morning we were joined by Mr. McGillivray and Mr. Ratcliff and ran down to Benghisa Point (via Filfla) and then we pulled up to the R.A.F.S.C. at Marsaxlokk — a mere 11 miles. After a relatively peaceful night under a real roof, we tacked out of the bay to Delimara Point and then ran up the coast to Grand Harbour which we reached just after lunch.
