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!

Land spotted off the port bow. We're about half way between Anglesey and the Isle of Man, having made very good time, but punching tide now.

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.

Entered the narrow entrance in visibility of less than 150 metres. Fuel and water taken on, then the sun came out. Rafted up against Donegal Breeze, thanks for the beer.
