The Magnetic Attraction of the Faroes

It seems Sumara just wants to go there! The last two days have been pretty awful bashing into steep seas with strong headwinds and cold to boot. The leeway has been excessive as the little ship has been tumbling off the breaking waves so, combined with the wind direction, we keep tracking towards the Faroes. We shall resist as Scotland is our desired target. I’ve promissed Ray white pudding and I hope to fulfill it. All the reefs have been shaken out and soon I will hoist the genoa as the wind keeps dropping off. Today is the first day sailing without wearing woollen mittens although two pairs of merinos and a wool pullover are still needed. Looking forward to some warmth. Hoping to arrive in Scotland on  Tuesday.

  3. Been off the grid last few days so only just catching up. Hoping so very much things are warming up for you and Scotland comes into sight and landfall is when and where desired. X

    1. Just moored up in Stornoway. Waiting three hours, so far, to try to clear customs. Ray is desperate for a greasy breakfast!
