0530 we slipped from Bangor. Winds were light and the tide was strong so we sailed to give Lighthouse island a wide berth before heading south towards Strangford Lough.
With the tide in our favour we were hitting 7 knots over the ground at times but as we crossed Strangford Lough the wind died, the tide turned, fog came rolling in and some heavy overfalls were sighted. Amazing how the conditions change so much throughout the day.
After bashing through the overfalls we entered the narrow little entrance to Ardglass harbour at 1830.
Lou knocked up a great chicken curry as Dan, Dave and I put Tikka to bed.
Ardglass is still a very small fishing harbour with a small marina but has great facilities for visiting yachts which we took advantage of before getting an early night ready for tomorrow’s early start.
