15th July 2011 (Douglas Stevenson and Heather Gray)

7.45pm - Left Stornoway at 8:30am this morning, after catching up on our sleep through the night.

We saw some more dolphins today, they didn't swim with us for as long though. We've had a day of mixed weather, starting off with nice blue skies but slowly getting worse through the day. Sailed for most of the day, but as the wind has fallen away we've resorted to steaming ahead with the engines. We've also been playing a few card games to keep ourselves entertained, and are hoping to make our way to Shetland in the next couple of days. See you there!
