At 2200 on Monday night our crews set out for Arbroath on the second overnight sail of the round Britain sail 2019. With calm seas and a fair wind, at times reaching 20 knots, our crews made 7 knots speed, a fair pace for our two vessels on this trip so far!
Again the experience of our skippers was reassuring to the others on board, even those who have sailed at night before, as navigating at night is a challenge and it is always comforting to know there is someone to rely on to keep you on course. Our crews enjoyed more views of the Milky Way, with shooting stars aplenty and many warm cups of tea to keep them going.
On arrival in Arbroath, with Ashanti and Clearlake II safely moored, our hungry crews treated themselves to a bounty of famous Arbroath Smokies (traditional hot-smoked haddock) as reward for all their hard work, and as preparation for what is yet to come.
