I had rather a disturbed night, after getting into the bunk early the anchor alarm went off at 01:00, the wind had gone from south west to north east and the anchor was not quite where I said it was and, with a tight set up and at low water, the boat went a few feet over the boundary. The wind then went a little north of west and the boat got a little rocky.
|The boats track overnight shown after I had corrected the anchor|
location, its never easy to get it spot on and I usually set the alarm
allowing for a larger merger of error.
|Copland Island, the channel looks wide but the channel is only|
about 200 yards across with over-falls possible at the southern end.
Unfortunately the sun was clouded over not long after the pic.
|Ardglass marina is a little cramped around the edges. |
The commercial harbour is the other side of the drying rocks, a
few fishing boats can be seen in the background.
