13th July 2011 (Douglas Stevenson)

9pm - Just left North Uist and sailing towards Stornoway.

This is the first time we've had the motor off since we left Greenock and we've managed to get all four sails up! Everybody’s settling into their shift patterns well.

We got the deck scrubbed today and also had a nice visit from some dolphins who swam alongside us for a while. We're being kept busy by looking out for the odd fishing boat and lots and lots of creel! As they say, no rest for the wicked….
