May 22 – Bangor to Glenarm (30nm)

By | May 22, 2012

A good sailing day. We left Bangor after and were soon gybing down wind with true winds of 15 knots and the tide behind us. Sun shining but fog patches and fast ferries, coming in and out of Larn, made it more interesting. Wind held out until we were just of the entrance to Glenarm marina.

Glenarm itself is a small village with two pubs and a tiny shop. Eating on board tonight!

We could clearly see Scotland now – the bottom end of the Mull of Galloway – about 20nm NE of us.

Scotland – the Mull of Kintrye 20 miles distant

We are now in at at a good jumping off point for our 50nm trip tomorrow. This will be across the North Channel to the Mull and then a further 25nm across to Port Ellen on Islay.
