The wind got up close to Browns Bay and the shelter was marginal but with a wind change due shortly I decided not to spend the extra time going into Larne.
46 nautical miles in 10 hours.
|A tight and initially quite bumpy anchorage.
The trip to Port Ellen was a disappointment, a nice reasonably warm, sunny day but a light cold wind and I motored most of the way and was lucky to have secured to the pontoon and had power connected five minutes before rain arrived.

The Mull of Kintyre with more yachts at sea than I have
seen at one time since leaving St Mawes.
Port Ellen, Islay when the weather improved the day after I
arrived. Unfortunately all of the distilleries were closed
Port Ellen marina had places to spare, unlike those on the
south coast where I understand that bookable berths are all
taken until the end of August, and the Scilly Islands are also
50 nautical miles in 10 hours.
