LEG 4, Sail4Macmillan 23 (West Coast of Scotland - Oban to Rhu)

After a day of rest at Oban the new crew arrived to join Florence Agnes and Galliver.  The first day was a lovely sail down the coast to Crinan.  The Crinan Canal is renowned for being the prettiest canal in the UK. The boats spent the night moored in the canal basin before making the transit to Loch Fyne. and the Clyde Estuary.

There was a special surprise in store for the crew of Galliver as Richard amazed everyone by producing puff pastry - getting up at 2am to ensure the job was done perfectly.

The recipients of these delicious offerings, complemented by Tiptree Jams, were ecstatic in their praise for Richards efforts. We believe he has been asked back as head chef!!

The trip through the Crinan Canal was an absolute joy  with some amazing views across the countryside.

Florence, seen here showing off her sponsors logo ( Volvo and Volspec) joined Galliver  at a peaceful anchorage in Loch Fyne before spending a night at Tarbert - one of the loveliest  publicly owned marinas.

From Tarbert the two boats made their way to Bute and Rothesay.... There is something special about Rothesay... apart from being a lovely place to stay the public conveniences are something to behold and remind one of a previous era of opulence and grandeur.The boats have now arrived in Rhu near Helensburgh ready for a crew change and preparation for the journey down the Irish Sea to Milford Haven.  The total raised for Macmillan has now topped £47k since 2016 so our thanks to all involved.
