It’s a 30 mile sale from Troon to Portavaddie, so we cracked
on as we knew the wind would be calming down while we made the passage.
Started really ‘lively’ with a horrible beam sea, the one
that makes it really uncomfortable and add to that the rain! Never mind, it
started with some really good sailing making between 8 and 9 knts for the first
couple of hours.
Unfortunately the rain then came and the visibility went –
something that was going to be a constant for the next few days.
