She slipped her moorings as clouds sailed in overhead like galleons riding the sea breeze.
Crowds gathered on the Quay at Wells, to wave off one of the town's most familiar landmarks.
Floating bar and restaurant the Albatros has bid goodbye to her usual berth and set sail for Great Yarmouth.
The 117-year-old former sailing barge, which has survived two world wars and the 2012 storm surge, is going into dry dock for a survey.
She is due to return to Wells on Thursday, May 12, reopening the following day at noon.
