Round Ireland. Part 2. F**k Dolphins.

We rounded the Fastnet Rock at around 4pm on Sunday 1st of July. It took us longer to get there with a smaller kite, but it was champagne racing: the boat was mostly flat, you did not have to assume an eagle pose to use the heads, Jon the skipper sprinkled our pasta for dinner with Parmesan and it actually landed on the pasta. 802 more words


Tuesday 17 July Carlingford Lough, Eire

We go for showers. The design of the steps from the cargo boat to pontoon leaves a bit to be desired if you want to get off the boat at low water during Spring tides! 459 more words

Navigating the Crinan Canal

The next morning we left Oban early and head to the Crinan, this time the weather was a better to us, we managed to have the sails up all the way, with my new found knowledge I was feeling a little more confident and relaxed, so I had a go at actually sailing instead of watching Sarah sail, I quite enjoyed it, keeping an eye on the wind direction and adjusting the sails accordingly, deciding when we needed to tack and pulling the ropes, tying the bow line and putting the fenders on when we approach Oban. 1,559 more words
