Gaffers in Kerrera

We woke up to another day of Mediterranean sunshine and a light SE wind. We left Tobermory at 7am and tacked down the Sound of Mull towards Oban in company with Ricks in Recipe. As so often has happened this summer, the wind faded away after a few hours. We ended up motoring against the tide, which seemed to be both more turbulent and more adverse than the tide tables had led us to expect. We arrived at Kerrera mid afternoon to find a number of gaffers already here. All the Round Britain gaffers and a number of local boats should be gathering in the next day or so. Some we have not seen for several weeks so it will be good to catch up.We also met our friends Jane and Julian who in a change of plan have decided to leave their boat ashore in the boatyard for a while. It was nice to see them both but we were sorry about the problems with the boat.
