We had good sailing from Mull round Ardnamurchan Point to Arisaig,
arriving shortly before the wind really got up. The holding is good
and we spent a comfortable at anchor night despite the strong wind and
heavy rain. A phone next morning call to a yacht rigger on the Clyde
provided directions for stripping down the Furlex gear, so while the
mate took the train into Fort William for provisions, the skipper
successfully repaired the headsail furling system. Later in the day we
were joined for the week by Jim and Linda, who brought good weather
with them – the evening turned out very fine. With good weather
continuing we sailed out past Rum and round to Canna, enjoying views
of the mainland hills. As the afternoon warmed up, the cloud level
gradually rose, revealing the peaks of the Skye and Rum Cuillins. We
walked across the new bridge to Sanday to visit the renovated church,
but found it still a building site after five years of (very
intermittent?) work.
