Back to Ireland

Still without a sailing wind, but with a surprisingly lumpy swell, we crossed back to the east coast of Ireland, and spent a night at the snug little marina at Ardglass. The harbour is beautiful but the town itself has little to offer unless its many small pubs are of interest. Timing our departure carefully, we reached the entrance to Strangford Lough at slack water, so avoiding the potential overfalls outside and tide in the narrows which can run at up to 7 knots. Once inside the lough we continued round to the SW end and moored off Quoile Yacht Club, in a quiet and pretty spot which induced us to be lazy for the rest of the day.
