Passing Anglesey in the morning light we had a magnificent view of Snowdon and the Rivals on the LLeyn peninsula. We avoided the numerous ferries bound for Holyhead and Liverpool and set sail north-westerly towards Ireland again. Very soon Howth headland and Lambay Island hove into view in the glorious afternoon sunshine. We could see the Mountains of Mourne to the north, prompting several members of the Aft Port watch to burst into nostalgic song ( very tuneful but they only knew lyrics to the first few lines so we all had to improvise).
Sails were all handed at 10pm and we changed course and started to motor towards Peel on the Isle of Man where we will hopefully arrive Wednesday am.
