Wednesday:

We joined up with a third skipper and boat for this leg of Sailing Round Britain, Laurie on Bluebird. It was a beautiful morning with Ben Nevis clear of cloud as we escaped the Caledonian Canal, a brisk northerly breeze funneled down Loch Linnhe to blow us on our way. The tide shot us through the Corran Narrows and on down the Lynn of Morvern. Laurie recommended a good lunch stop, a quiet anchorage in Berrera Bay. The wind rose to 30 knots as we rounded the foot of Lismore Island and reached across the Lynn of Lorn to Kerrera Island, where we walked through swathes of bluebells.
