Cruising Reports

Smalls or Bailies

Actually sunrise in Bermuda after a race from Antigua as I couldn’t find a picture of either the Smalls or the Bailies. Where are they anyway? Well either side of St Georges Channel which is the narrow bit between Wales and the SE of Ireland. It is 40 miles across with sometimes tricky shallows and rocks on bothe sides (Smalls Wales, Bailieys Ireland) and 100 square miles of Traffic Seperation Scheme in the middle. Just the sort of challenge we like on a Mile builder trip and it forms part of the first big one from Lymington to Troon
The Mile building sailing up in Scotland will also invlove navigational challenges and give those progressing towards YachtMaster the opportunity to gain Qualifying Passages.
