Melvyn is now in Stornoway - jumping off point for Iceland.  Lack of wind meant he had to motor most of the way but a slow moving high pressure area forecast for Wednesday/Thursday bodes well for his anticipated 5-day sail to Iceland.  Today he was going to devote to "domestic" duties such as 'washing and ironing...minus the ironing'.  He thinks Wednesday or Thursday departure for Iceland and perhaps arrival in Halifax by early August.
No more basking sharks, but dolphins en route and a solitary seal which has made its home in the corner of Stornoway harbour Melv is presently moored in.
