Four Wayfarers set off from Tayvallich on Sunday June 15th in sunny weather and a light NNE breeze, returning there on Wednesday 25th, having covered just over 230 miles. We were extraordinary lucky with the weather, with only one day of rain! Sailing was concentrated around the islands of Jura, Gigha, and Colonsay, and Loch Sween and Crinan on the mainland.
Sailing in company were:
John and Olwen Mellor – Aowen
Matt Sharman and Kate Mellor – Lone Wild,
Dave and Julie Barker – Shearwater, and
Myself and Chris Codling – Gandalf.
