Can’t be too annoyed with this. Well ready for a rest and the force 8 gale warning seemed as good a reason as any. Took the boat to the workshop and was given a history lesson on the Taran.
Spent the afternoon in Bangor catching up with some friends. Thanks Jacob for the t-shirt bearing an image of me riding a dragon.
With more kind help from Mike at Rockpool I had tea and headed back to Cemlyn to camp it out and get a better feel for what the weather was doing. I needn’t have bothered, force 5-6 all night and not really easing in the morning. Looks like another day weatherbound.
Having to actively banish the thought that by not losing that day in Cardigan Bay, I might have made the Isle of Man in the window and whilst this it’s not crossing weather I probably could have scratched round the coast. ‘Ifs’ and ‘buts’, forget it.
