Cruising Continues

Once back aboard, we had to wait a further day for reasonable sailing conditions. From Loch Feochan we sailed with a following wind up Kerrera Sound, through Oban Bay and north to Lismore, where we anchored at Port Ramsay. We had difficulty getting the anchor to set properly, but succeeded at the fourth attempt. Later in the afternoon we were joined by Tekoa (a fellow Westerly) with skipper Jane, crew Iain and French guests Michel and Helene. A welcoming drink on Arctica was followed later by an after dinner ceilidh on Tekoa with some pipe and moothie music, french songs and Iain’s recitation of Tam o’Shanter. Today we motored south to the Sound of Mull into the teeth of a strong wind, but made better progress in the sound to Loch Aline, where we took up a vacant mooring. Since arrival the wind has been gusting violently to Gale Force 8 with accompanying squally showers. Too much weather, and only a month to Midsummer Day!
