At last a warm day! Unfortunately the wind was very light, most of the time only about 5 knots but it was a pleasant sail and for the first time on this trip I was sailing in shirt sleeves and shorts - at least for a few hours.
|Track from Hunda Sound to Stromness. Skirting the|
Barrel of Butter reef at the half way point.

The boat has divers down, probably fishing for Scallops, the owner
dived on Sancerre last year when I had propeller problems
|A nice Laurent Giles 38 footer also going to Stromness, I was the|
first visiting yacht at Stromness this year half an hour ahead of her.
|Defences on the Orkney "mainland" shore of Scarpa Flow.|
|Graemsay and Hoy|
