Low pressure pushing in from Iceland meant a short sharp weather front followed by a steady decline in conditions so we slipped and headed to Ramsey to hide from the storm.
Constant wind and a bit of planning to catch the pull of the tides saw 10.8 knots over the ground, not bad at all.
Pretty uneventful sail across, still no sun, that will be 12 days of greyness! Lot of shipping but nothing that caused the AIS to give an alert
I’m more confident on the anchor than picking up a buoy as we are a pretty big boat, and a big blow was coming.
Last pick is the clouds descending down the mountain – it was coming
