East Down


4th June: Cruised around the lough, visiting Down Cruising Club, Kirkcubbin and the river Quoile, before picking up a mooring again at Killyleagh. After leaving Kirkcubbin we picked up a PANPAN from a yacht with engine failure and which was drifting onto rocksoff Rainey Island, where we had been two hours ealier. Two local boats and the Portaferry LIfeboat resolved the problem. The weather, which has been fantastic up to now was beginning to deteriorate with the promise of strong winds and rain. We have decided to move to Belfast tommorrow where we could rest out the bad weather before our temporary return to Whitehaven.
