Destiny In Quaint Eyemouth

18 October 2018 | NE Scotland
Janice
Leaving Scrabster at 10.30am yesterday, we had good wind on the beam which enabled us to be off Dunnet Point in time for the flood tide which saw us through the Pentland Firth (one of Britain's infamous tidal gates with flood tides up to 12kts, but for us a mellow sail as we had the entry time spot on and a neap tide) and round the most northern tip of mainland UK into the Moray Firth. We had such glorious weather, excellent beam reach wind from the West so we were steaming along at 8-9 knots, that we kept going passing our potential planned stops of Wick, then on overnight past Petershead and finally Montrose then passing the Firth of Forth to arrive here in quaint Eyemouth late afternoon. A tricky, very shallow harbour and entrance, we came in on Neaps low water seeing 0.7m on the depth gauge. With our keel up we touch at 0.5m so we only had 0.2m clear - 8"! We Moored up on the visitors pontoon, stretched our legs and enjoyed Haddock and Chips from Mackays chippy, having completed another 205nm.

We are still struggling with lush green views that greet us and our boat heightened sense of smell is picking up the various land scents such as grass, trees and ploughed earth as we enter each new harbour.
