Scallop dredging

Monday 14th.

A lazy sail up the coast to the Mercury Islands. There was a Tsunami warning but nothing was felt here. Today is a typical late summers’ day and a gentle sail, stop to catch a fish for supper and we’ll be in another anchorage tonight. In such light winds we aim to anchor in all the places that are marked in the guides as fair weather only. It is still legal to dredge for scallops here. Don’t they realise what damage they do the sea bed?
