Stages 5 & 6, Rosslare - Roney Head - Dublin.

After a tough day and a half from St Ives but a good nights sleep I decided against the planned rest day in favour of a relatively short leg on Wednesday, after a lie-in waiting for the tide I left at 11:40 towards Arklow in good weather reaching in 8 – 11 knots of wind. It would have been a late finish to go all the way so I anchored behind Roney Head at 17:30.

At 07:00 next morning I was off again in overcast but generally dry weather anchoring in Sorrento Bay Dublin at 17:15.

71 miles over the two days with just over 16 hours on the move with some interesting navigation inside the offshore banks that run all of the way from Rosslare to Dublin.

Sorrento Bay Dublin is a popular bathing spot.

Unfortunately there are often idiots about, in this case 
on jet skis and driving power boats very close to the swimmers
and me - costing a glass of wine spilled on the cockpit floor 😒
