Geoff Hale, editor of clevedonnews (a local newsreel of events in and around Clevedon) has kindly sent in a link to video he shot of Waverleys sailing from Clevedon to Minehead. http://youtu.be/Lv1C0mvSOfI
He picked probably the best day of Waverleys Bristol Channel season, to sail - the sun came out and so did the passengers, around 400 from Clevedon/Penarth to Minehead where a good crowd of about 150 boarded for the 1 hour cruise to Porlock Bay.
A few photos that I took on that sunny day appear below.
