Having missed the opportunity of making the crossing to Ireland yesterday we were somewhat despondent at the forecast today which included rain thunder force six wind and fog. However none of that deterred us from a trip some ten miles up river to the pub at Lawrenny. It actually turned out to be a fantastic sail with strong winds on flat water. We nearly got a bit of Ireland thrown in as the isle of inishmore (see photo) took margaret by surprise from astern.
Having paid our dues at the pub at Lawrenny we sailed back the way we came to Dale, again with lovely sailing conditions, and moored up on the self same buoys we left on the morning. Not exactly a wild adventure but thoroughly enjoyable and in the spirit of leisure sailing, ultimately totally pointless but a worthy endeavour none the less. Finished off by a game of jenga in the griffin (see photo).
Plan to go through jack sound and berth in Solva tomorrow morning though the forecast 5-6 northerly might make jack sound interesting/impossible.
Sstill vaguely planning a more distant destination later in the week if weather allows.
