It was a somewhat awe inspiring to sail in seas where so many famous sailors have sailed - Nelson being the prime example. We thought too of all those who had been shipwrecked there too. The lighthouse, high up on the cliffs and teetering on the edge, was impressive even though we didn't see it when it was dark as we were still too far away. The geology of the cliffs was extraordinary.
I didn't sleep much - I was too busy thinking about the approach to land, the shipping lanes and leaving the boat. It will be quite a change to be back on land.
