Off we go

Postby Mavanier » Sun Jul 07, 2013 12:08 am

High pressure appears to have coincided with the start of our 2wk cruise. Setting off from Portree tomorrow, destination tbd. Plan to be in Stornoway for most of the second week, for the Sail Stornoway festival.
Any chance of bumping into any of your esteemed selves?

I suspect that that you might come across Nick and Kath on Fairwinds

Yes it was good to see you guys again, how are the rowing blisters Nick?
I got another chance to cox the Stornoway skiff at our own festival and won a Marag for my troubles.
That pesky Contessa Marisca snuck off with 2 firsts and a second in the yacht races. He has won several creels and paintings now so the boat should surely be getting too heavily laden to win again next year.

All told, a great wee cruise. Less of an adventure than previous years, considerably less mileage, and more enjoyable for it in a lot of ways.

I still need some floating line and markers for the creels so I might be back up again. Lewis in sunshine is a rather nice place but the clegs are something else. 38 litres of fuel to get back to Oban for WHYW - I think I sailed for about 2 hours, if that - pity only 25% of it goes to moving the boat.
SailHebrides is highly recommended.
