After we made such great progress on our ocean passage the crew decided to stop off at the dual world heritage site of St. Kilda. The archipelago is one of the most stunning places to visit off the Scottish coast and with a long, intriguing history it’s sure to be a stop that will feature highly in the crew’s memories of the trip.
With a night of rest while not moving, well not so much and chocolate rations brought up to date it’s been a toast to our successful ocean crossing. For the remainder of our Icelandic challenge we will be taking the pace a bit easier as we cruise back to Taeping’s base at Kip Marina.
The team will now take on the famous “Mull of Kintyre” on the next stage of their trip. With some of the most interesting navigation the team will need to get their timing right to round the Mull with the tide before heading for some cruising in the calmer waters of the Clyde.
No doubt mobile phones will start to ping into life in the next day or two as we get closer to the mainland and reality again!
