Pentargon (looking a bit worse for wear!) at Prince St.Bridge in August 2018, after her epic run from Sharpness via the Bristol Channel, including overnighting at anchor outside Portishead Marina and experiencing a relaxed 40ft tide in real time, followed by ... an early tidal push up the Avon Gorge to enter Bristol Floating Harbour, shipshape and bristol fashion ... before proceeding onwards during the day to re-enter C&RT waters at Hanham, way out in rural St.Glos.
I should have named the whole exhilarating experience "cart to cart" seeing as how I left C&RT jurisdiction at Sharpness at 11oc on Sat.13thAugust and entered Bristol sea lock exactly 24hrs later at 11oc. However, the legal remit for the Floating Harbour rests with the Bristol Port Authority and that remit stretches up the Avon to the first lock at Hanham in St.Glos. ... quite a ways out of town.
The minutiae of the episode are dealt with in "Day by Day" where the blog resides. (amaranth)
