24 Aug Dunbar
24 August 2016
After the visit to Kirkwall we left after dinner. We set the mainsail and all the square sails. The wind was not too strong but the current helped us in the right direction. But when the wind really disappeared we decided to start the engine and sail to the southeast. The forecast predicted that there would be wind from the southeast so we wanted create some space between us and Peterhead so we could sail southwest. And we did.
During the night the wind turned to the south so we went on engine again and made our way down the Scottish east coast.
This morning the fog finally disappeared and the sun came out. We dropped anchor at Dunbar, a small town 50 km east of Edinburgh. We will spend the day here, walking in the sun, or take the bus to Edinburgh and others stay on board to catch some fish in this beautiful weather.
Tonight we will depart for the last part to Blyth, hopefully under sail.
