Day 4 of this leg of the sail4macmillan round Britain cruise saw Ashanti and Clearlake II set off for the Laggan locks, whilst tacking their way across Loch Oich on the way.
As we have one skipper and a couple of crew taking on the whole trip (all seven legs!) this year, the slower pace offers a little respite from the long offshore stretches, and those joining us for this leg of the journey the open water of the Lochs offer a taste of the excitement of sailing without being overwhelming.
As our crews arrived at Laggan, they discovered The Barge Inn, a converted barge on the banks of the canal, which proved to be a good watering hole for the evening, and the walk back provided a view of the locks at night, stunningly lit and majestic against the dramatic backdrop of the highlands.
Throughout this trip, our crews are helping to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, aiding them in giving the crucial help they provide for so many.
