Easter Weekend Sailing

After a brief time out of the water for some annual maintenance and a few repairs, Jess is back in the water.

A friend from my ukulele group joined me for a weekend trip round the Kyles of Bute and on to Portavadie for the night. The weather wasn’t great on Sunday but we did manage a great sail across the Sound of Bute and up the East Kyle. In 20+ knots of wind coming from the NE we managed a steady 6.5 – 7 knots.

Great night in Portavadie, service and food up to its usual high standard.

The forecast for Monday looked promising with a good wind coming from the NE but that never materialised.  Instead we got a glorious sunny day with virtually no wind.

As always, the first outing threw up a few issues that will need to be sorted.
