A lovely sunny morning with light winds. After extricating ourselves from or berth, we carefully negotiated the exit channel with only 0.5m under our keel and set off eastwards directly into the wind, which got up to F4 for a while. Lots of gannets feeding and the odd puffin and fulmar, but only one dolphin. After passing Fraserburgh we had help from the tide (up to 3kts). Turning South the wind was on our quarter but died to F2 or less .
Approaching Peterhead we called up for clearance to enter, and then contacted the marina who directed us to the visitors pontoon. As you can see we were lucky to get a berth!
