Mull of Kintyre

DSCF1419Navigation wise getting the tide right around the Mull of Kintyre is hugely important when passage planning.  Not so easy when the starting point is Plymouth.  Nevertheless, after an overnight stop in Dunloaghaire and some fabulous sailing we arrived at the Mull with a fair tide which carried us all the way north and through the sound of Islay. From there it was a quick sprint north to Oban.


Plymouth to Oban,  512 nm, 7 days, In the words of our guests

“What an adventure. 4 seasons in 4 hours. Dolphins , seals and porpoise. Laughs, challenges and achievements. England, Ireland and Scotland in one week. Thanks Lin and Richard for getting us here safely and happily, but most of all thanks Velvet Lady for being the most amazing boat to sail. Will be back again. Cheers!
