Portpatrick then across the North Channel


Although Portpatrick, our next port of call, is itself an attractive place the same cannot be said of its harbour, snug though it is. Depths just outside are less than charted and we had uncomfortably little clearance on entry. The harbour wall is high and dirty, and the pigeons and starlings nesting in holes fairly mess up a nice clean yacht! Overnight, a yacht settled aground in its berth when there should have been enough water to stay afloat. We were glad to get away the next morning.
