What a weekend – sailing to Bute

sometimes the weather gods conspire. For once there was heat in abundance although the wind was a bit light.

The sail down to Rothesay was good… once around the point we had a light northerly breeze fill in and although we were sailing against the tide we made decent time.

Ruby learning to helm – she is on the ‘take a mark on the horizon’ stage.

In Rothesay we stopped for lunch had a great walk up the hill and through the woods then back to town for ice-cream. The wind swung southerly for our trip back north – not many days where you have the wind on your back for both directions.

We even saw a small harbour porpoise which came out underneath our yacht to say hello. no photo for the fleeting visit though as my phone died.
