A great, albeit chilly, sail. after clearing Filey Brig I was able to sail all the way to Blyth offing at good speed. The dampener on this was the possibility of getting stuck in Blyth for an extended period due to approaching weather, hopefully not for 12 days as happened last year.
72.4 NM in 14.5 hours an average of 4.99 knots. Wind generally easterly at 7 - 12 knots.
