After a skills day alongside, (knots, rowing, navigation & safety) we left Peterhead at 1.00pm as the fog lifted.
Sails were hoisted and man overboard drills completed before heading due South on watches arriving at Holy Island (back in Northumberland for the first time in 10 weeks, at 3.00pm on 21st May.
We launched the dingy to find there were no shops open on the Island and we were reduced to long life milk. A stunning location to rest at anchor, which has been a great blessing to all those aboard.
How the folks of Holy Island felt about a visit from a Danish sailing vessel felt was only discernible by smiles and a pleasant welcome.
We will sit at anchor on a watch rota overnight after a fragrant meal of falafel.
