Almost to OBAN, SCOTLAND

After heading to bed at 0400 I was able to sleep in until 1030; I woke up in time for my 0800 watcha nd could hear the sounds of breakfast and lots of chatter - no one called out for my assistnace so I buried my head for another 2 hours of well needed rest. We have no wind to speak of and are motor-sailing [...]

Transatlantic Day TEN

Day NINE we continued to make steady progress but in a slower lollygagging manner, seemingly pottering about here in the Atlantic with no purpose or direction - indeed we do have a direction but this bobbing to and fro feels less producitve for sure (lollygagging is what you did as a child - or were [...]

After heading to bed at 0400 I was able to sleep in until 1030; I woke up in time for my 0800 watcha nd could hear the sounds of breakfast and lots of chatter - no one called out for my assistnace so I buried my head for another 2 hours of well needed rest. We have no wind to speak of and are motor-sailing directly to Oban; Dirk & Fred tinkered with the AIS today and with beautiful sunshine we planned an Hor d'Ouevre luncheon to celebrate 100 nm to the entrance of the Firth of Lorn. Dirk has figured out the tide and so we'll approach from the north, and good news - they'll have a berth available when we get there / it's a busy time of year in Scotland.We've been followed by a few sea birds - robust seagulls and a fw gannetts / today there have not yet been dolphins, but they seem to especially love dusk. All in all a good, leaving us plenty of time to plan and map our approach.

All the best to everyone - Cheers!
