First sail of the year

For once the forecast window in the weather held true and it was on a Saturday. Time for the first sail of the year!

Saying that it wasn't quite as nice as forecast, pretty overcast and grey, but a nice wind and dry, so no real complaints. We headed out of Voe with no plan other than to shake out the sails, blow the cobwebs away and may be set our record west (not a hard one to beat!).


We ended up having a great sail out past Vementry and down the coast towards West Burrafirth before we turned around to be back before the weather was due to build. Here's a rough idea of our route...


Martin who owns Märta...


Heading back towards Swarbacks Head and The Guns of Vementry...



Muckle Roe Light behind us...


I hadn't brought my camera, so just took a few photos on my mobile and a few video clips to make this short video when we were out past Vementry...


Gales and rain today, possibly up to F10 by the end of it so I doubt there be much happening other than a session of Sufferfest on the turbo trainer and may be a swim with Beren.
