Oh what a lovely days sailing from Cromor to Stornoway. Once the reluctant Parsun outboard had been removed and the Honda 2.3 put in it's place. Was wasted before we started after doing that lot. The Parsun came along for the ride in the blow-up towed behind.

Yes that's sunshine. Eve with her sun hat on and the sea 'raging' behind. This was going out of Cromor and Loch Erisort with what wind there was in our faces. You can see our flag was nearly ripped off its hinges.

The breeze got up once in the Minch and the sailing was grand. Porpoises came our way and watched our interestingly executed tacks out and up.

Oh, twas grand. Just enough wind for 2-3knts an a easy sail to our home mooring.

We got there, just beating the ferry home and annoyingly being over-bobbed by a  leaving French fishing vessel out of Stornoway. Gets us everytime !

Home, to the mooring where we put the Parsun o/b back on the big boat [Leisure 17 ] and typically, it started first time.

I spent the rest of the day varnishing bits of boatee wood and resting while Eve cycle back to Cromor [25 miles] to pick the car up. What a lovely day.
