Saturday 6/7/13, Wind: Southerly 3 to 4, Sunny to start then low cloud and rain.
After a long sail from Ireland to Jura yesterday a calm relaxing sail up the Sound of Jura to (any) quite spot near Oban. Scenery was stunning and with a force 3 to 4 from behind we had a comfortable relaxing sail.
Picked a mooring in Balvicar Bay next to Robin Knox-Johnston's old Suhaili in which he circumnavigated the world in 1968 or so we were told by the fellow claimed to have bought her… need to check out that story once we get proper wifi.
Tomorrow to Oban marina to pick up Sue and Gez.
Leaving our anchorage this morning:
