Very low tides this week provide unique challenges to ferry skippers, read and see about the tides and their effect from our skipper Simon.
Little room to manoeuver means that at times a helping hand is needed to move backwards out of the ferry steps as there is a very real danger of running aground.
This tide stop kept Place ferry quiet for at least two hours, but the weather was very warm and sunny. Falmouth at the same time was overcast and grey as was the Helford passage.
An example of just how local the weather can be and how wrong the forecasters are at times.
