Stromness to Longhope
Friday 21st May 2021
Set off at 1500 to Longhope in order to position ourselves for the Pentland Firth crossing the following day. Wonderful intricate sail between the islands in NE 5-6. Moored up alongside the lifeboat behind Longhope Pier on advice from assistant coxswain. Made a plan to leave sharply and moor outside should there be a 'shout'!
Patrick was navigator of the day, having been allowed out from his quarters....
