As at 1200 hours UTC 8 September
Position: N51 14 95 W008 34 45 Distance run over 24 hours: 110 NM
Switched off engine at 1030 and now enjoying some quiet at last. If we make it to Carnsore Point waypoint under sail, we have enough fuel to motor home from there ok.
AIS might be visible on Live Ships website from this am as only 23 miles from coast but will probably lose it again as we head a little east of north to meet (I mean clear!!!) Burial Island, N.I. which is the most easterly point of Ireland.
DISREGARD PREVIOUS JUST RECEIVED IRISH FORECAST OF GALES TONIGHT IRISH SEA AND N WESTERLIES TOMORROW. LOOSE SAIL MAKES IT WORSE!! dIVERTING TO PROBABLY KINSALE.
Oul Grumpy Jim and just Jim
