nearly 3am Great Night and going Strong
Sat 11 Aug 2018 01:57
This night sail couldn't be any more different from the Bergen crossing. Calm seas, nice breeze, starlight sky and phosphorescence in the water.
We are still motor sailing with full main and genoa, as we need to keep up an average speed over ground of 5.5kts, to make it back to Lossiemouth in good time. although we have had a lift with the tide in a light breeze when leaving Fair Isle, we now have a stronger breeze but need to make 7kts over water to maintain 5.5kts over the ground. Hope to get the Engine off a little later as it is now a very nice F3.
