So far maybe the most sceninc area, passing through the Sound of Jura and heading alongside of Islay, besides reminding of the skillfully made single malts, the landscape is both harsh and serene. Tidal currents between the islands are strong, but they also form an excellent protected area from the open seas for sailing. This day is to be the most comfortable sailing day to the record, and we are able to work while sailing too. Again here the paradox, when you could most enjoy the sail, you head indoors to work and pop out to the deck every now and then to take a picture or two and breathe in, and go back in.
Some intense winds is ahead, so we go straight across over night to Belfast. At sunset, we see a beautiful sunray emboss the coast of North Ireland. Nigel sees a whale!
