I had planned to be in Waterford on Saturday to avoid strong winds on Sunday then head for Milford Haven on Monday to pick up favourable winds to make for the Isles of Scilly on Tuesday but the forecast has changed again. The wind remains unpredictable, forecast strong winds not being as strong as predicted, light winds somewhat stronger and timings changing with every download.
But there looked to be a window on Wednesday to move along the coast before more strong winds on Thursday, Glandore looked to be an attractive anchorage but I could get there in just a few hours so I decided to move to Kinsale.

|The Northern side with a day mark named "Lott's wife".|

|The Old Head of Kinsale shortly before the engine went on.|
|Charles's Fort has the leading lights for the first part of the|
route up to Kinsale, not many pics as I had to drive and there
were a couple of boats nearby.

on it was blowing over 30 knots and things got rather wild with
fenders being forced up and out, fortunately I have a lot of fenders.
44 miles in nine and three-quarter hours.
