Just around this headland is the port of Whitehaven where we started this adventure nearly 6 weeks ago. We're hoping to be through the sealock just after midday...nearly there!

The journey home! 197 miles previous leg, about 150 this leg. Left Arklow at 08:00 to catch the strong northerly tides up the Irish coast, which we can see today. No wind at the moment, but NW forecast later. Tri-sail rigged instead of the missing main sail, boom lashed to guard rail. ETA at Whitehaven of Friday afternoon/evening.

Boom!

It was all going so well...and then the boom snapped in half. We're now limping towards Arklow for fuel, water and emergency repairs.
