Arriving in Stornoway

Posted in : Oriole

We awoke to torrential rain and an engine that wouldn’t start! But an hour later everything improved! Neal fixed the engine, Nick rustled up a Full Scottish, and the sun came out for our sail across The Minch. Sadly no whales, but we spotted lots of porpoises. We made sure we followed the buoyage correctly at a reassuring distance and then there was a tight squeeze coming alongside in Stornoway… Neal did a happy and heroic manoeuvre with seals supervising! We’ve had a great adventure and have some incredible memories. Thank you, Rubicon 3, and all the crew.
