On a fine day we all loaded onto the boat from beside Mayflower Steps and with an expert commentary provided by Nigel Overton from the City Museum and Art Gallery and headed for the Breakwater. The only problem was the wind was a bit strong and we were only just permitted to land, with the wind speed just 2mph below the safety limit.
 Once on the Breakwater itself we split into groups going to the lighthouse and the cage first. Nigel pointed out the stones commemorating the visits of the Duke of Clarence (William IV) and Princess Victoria (Queen Victoria) as well as the history of the Breakwater.
On the way back we had time to go up the Plym and into Hooe Lake as the tide was in.
