Friday 10th July - Salem to Arisaig

Salem to Arisaig 36 miles

Left Salem at 9:30am after strong winds last night and D periodically dashing on deck to strap down something else making a noise. Gusty winds and fog chased us down  loch Sunart. Headed for the Ardnamuchen point with tide with us   achieved up to 9knots at times.  Sea very squirmy - so Dermot wasn't allowed to leave the helm. Despite a full bladder :).

Only saw 5 other boats in the 6 hours it took us to get to Arisaig. Mind you it was foggy.  Pam eventually sailed when sea state and wind quitened down and Drmot was a happy man😤

We anchored as no moorings available and eventually motored ashore in the dinghy to walk and find the train station.  Also found a bustling pub showing the Andy Murray match at Wimbledon.  Shame about the result.

Dinner was home cooked bolognese with locally sourced beef - very good.

Overnight lots of rain and D woke to check the anchor at 2am.  All ok.  Best sleep in days!!
