Friday proved to continue with the 20+ kt winds. Caught the train and visited the Titanic Experience (what was Belfast before). Well worth the visit. Lots of history re shipbuilding etc. Silent on cause of catastrophe!!
Woke early on Saturday to little wind. Left asap. Day started well and finished well, but the 10 hours in between were excruciating with 23 kt winds which were not forecast, with waves and rain to match. Forgettable!! At least we were 90 miles further south. Arrived in the dark.
Sunday was windy and ‘on the nose’ so stayed put. Beautiful sunny day. With shorts on, we walked to and scrambled up the nearby ‘peak’ (Copa). Great walk which included a close-up of South Stack.
Monday has been a great day. Left Holyhead at about 06:00 and caught the tide around the two stacks. Sailed, motored & motorsailed in no more than about 10 kts. It’s been sunny. Currently, near Fishguard and, as the tide is about to turn in our favour, have decided to carry on to Dale. It’s getting warmer with lighter winds. Such pleasure. We might keep the boat after all.
