Paravanes rigged and I'm hot to trot, but am on a weather hold.

The fishermen, whose boat is just ahead and outside of Dauntless, came by this morning to take the food off the boat he had put on last night.

He'd been planning on leaving early this morning.
Seems another fisher called him to tell him the winds were "fresh"
That's 20kts plus sheet short steep waves.

I have two hours to go south, to get around Mizen Head, then 20 hours, NE.

I'll take two days to do it, but I'm not doing that with this winds. I need the normal westerly to return.

Bye the way, a few winters back, they had 120 kts on this dock from the west.

Holy Big Winds, Batman!

120 knots! In Ireland! In the Winter!

WOW. Maybe this is why they build the houses out of stone!

Later,

Good morning Richard, How does the weather look for today to get underway? Do you plan to travel straight thru or anchor overnight somewhere?

Leaving st 7:30, 2 hours before low tide, so that I get to Mizen Head at the turn of the tide. Then I'll have the flood with me.
Was going to anchor x but now the fishers tell me to dock at kinsdale.

Then Sunday it's on to Dunemore East, I'll dock and Monday morning the fuel truck all come (at a price unheard of in the milk the middle class EU) and I'll be set for the winter.

Then in whether Waterford by noon.

You are quite correct. The profiles are remarkably similar, along with air draft. I must say however that your Dauntless is much prettier. What a girl. The K42 has wonderful lines.

A good Dauntless day to get to sea.

Next stop, tonight, somewhere near Kinsdale.

I believe Delorme is on and sending.

For some reason I will not be as worried about the fuel this time. Have a good ride over there!

My anchorage.
I could have gone to Kinsdale, which is on the other (east) side of this peninsula.

But it was time for nature.
We missed each other.

Incredible shore line. How deep is it where you are anchored?

Wow, with that shoreline I would have expected it to be much deeper. You know how we think in Florida.

That is pretty coastline....

As long as there is not a storm and the engine is working.

Was that a building on the cliff in the post 50 photos or just more rock?

Later,
Dan

Richard, remember that when the good Lord made time he made plenty of it, you won't use it all up, stay cool, work with nature and take your time.
The 5 most lonely places on this earth are the desert, the arctic's, the mountain's the sky and the sea. I've sampled them all and the sea is the most fear some.
Not for nothing are sailors the most God fearing people.
Stay safe, the tidal ranges can be fearsome on the next leg of your journey.
I'll be following in your wake next July in Snow Mouse en route to Dunkirk..
Fair winds and safe harbours.

Interesting.

Maybe that's why the Atlantic wasn't so daunting for me.

I've had many life threatening situations in the arctic, virtually none on the water.
