Poraferry

    Description:

Because we need to be home next week, Pat and I decided to make a pilot cruise to Ireland. If all goes well we will set off again after completing essential business. Plans will be revised because of loss of time, so a full circumnavigation will have to be put off until 2010.

1st June: Departed Whitehaven at 0500 for first leg was to Strangford Lough in glorious sunshine. A good sail initially, reduced to motor sail to arrive at narrows HW-2hours to catch the last of the flood. Stopped first night in Portaferry. Cost us 20 for an alongside berth, and water top-up.

2nd June: Quiet day visiting the town. We took the ferry to Strangford (free with bus pass - 1.80 otherwise), had coffee and back to Portaferry for Fish and Chips before leaving for a swinging mooring at Killyleagh
