Fort William to Kyleakin, via Muck and Loch Scavaig (9th-24th July)

I took Raasay down Neptune's Staircase and on to Dunstaffnage on my own, having been abandoned by a crew struck down by sanity. I picked up Angus in Dunstaffnage and we went to Tobermory, Muck, Loch Scavaig (see earlier post) and Kyleakin - from whence he bussed home.

We had a good run up the Sound of Mull under the Aries - poled out genoa and prevented main. Everything very steady controlled. We couldn't have stopped easily, mind you ...:



You can see her yawing a bit here, but the vane brings her back on track easily:
