19th July 2011 (Paul Gaffney)

12.20am Our watch at 12 began with sunshine and calmer weather.

After a while we could see the hills of Hoy as we approached Orkney. We arrived in Stromness, moored next to the Christian Radich and joined them for a tasty bbq.





Blog Update - 9.25pm

Had a much needed long lie today in Stromness then after cleaning our vessel we went on a coach trip to Skara Brae, Skaill House, Kirbuster Farm Museum and the Ring of Brodgar. Right now we are all enjoying some relaxation time in Stromness. We leave tomorrow heading north for Lerwick, possibly calling at Fair Isle if we have time.
