Rockall by Rival

Postby mm5aho » Mon Jul 02, 2018 8:53 pm

We leave for Rockall on Wednesday at 1800 from Kip on a fundraising voyage for able2sail, the Scottish sailing charity that takes disabled people out for days sailing (with their family usually).
Its about 1000 miles round trip, 2 women, 2 men, 10 days, 2 stops (Castlebay westbound and Stornoway eastbound.) in a small boat (Rival 32).
We hope there'll be at least some wind out there, but not another Storm Hector!

If you'd like to sponsor us, visit www.able2sail.org.uk and there's a link there.

You can track our voyage on yellow brick tracker here.. http://yb.tl/able2sail_2018 (activates on Wed about lunchtime).

11days later, back at departure point at Kip. That's some wild place, Rockall. Worth its own weather forecast!
