We have rounded Rathlin Island and are now heading south. We had a welcome from hundreds of mers and gannets and quite a few puffins. The scenery up here is lovely and it would be nice to stay, but we’re were quite happy with the 5 kts of current pushing us south east in the light winds.
Rounded Fastnet Rock just before 9 a.m. after a really fun night.
Happy Father’s Day!
One happy skipper leaving Green Dragon astern . . .
Had a great and crowded start, but came out of the pack and are now blasting south.
It’s been a calm motor and a bit of a drift sailing up the Irish Sea. The wildlife and scenery made up for the lack of wind.
Heading north in the middle of a gaggle of minis in the mini Fastnet.
Just after midnight CET on May 21st, Kite finished the 2022 NCR. They passed through the locks and spent the night in Ouistreham before heading back to the race village in Caen.
