On a beautiful morning, our two new crews set off on the first day of the second leg of the sail4macmillan round Britain cruise. The conditions could not have been more perfect, with a fair wind, and in the right direction this time, and clear skies, Ashanti and Clearlake II departed under sail alone for the first time in a couple of days.
Heading for the Scottish border, the two vessels needed to anchor off Holy Island for a rest and a good meal in a location that would not look out of place in a travel brochure. Even though the views are beautiful, the stop had to be short-lived, as our yachts and their crews need to set off at 2200 for an overnight sail to Arbroath.
