Sailing Report

Milebuilder so far


We haven’t gone as far as the picture–£50 off any new booking for a trip for someone identifying it correctly by 2nd May–but as I write Wild Spirit is in Greystone marina just south of Dublin after a couple of trips with some rather fast sailing. From Lymington we went to Weymouth and had 2 nights there to let a particulary strong southerly come through. A fast run down to Plymouth was followed by a cracking run down to the splendid port of Fowey. The next day had little wind forecast but we managed to sail most of the way to Falmouth and team changeover.
The Falmouth to Dublin mile building trip saw us sail rather quickly to Milford Haven where we spent 2 nights before an early start for our run across to Arklow covering 100NM in 12 hours. After sampling some Irish food and the odd pint we wanted to overnight in Wicklow but the wind was strongwer than forecast and from wxactly the wrong direction so we went past and on to the Castle like shelter of Greystones Marina before having a super meal in the Hungry Monk. A particular feature we noted was the playing of Gregorian Chants in the toilets.
Next leg as we sail on to Scotland is the RYA milebuilder from Greystones to Troon.
