Leaving Tantina II at Inverness, the next part of my RBC was by train to Anstruther. On this part of the journey I was carrying the Scottish Token, a scale model of Reaper housed in a Dimple bottle and sealed with an original cork, which I will present to the The Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther. As I was now “Boatless” Windbreker offered me a berth and sail to Eyemouth. We sailed to Mays Island where Edgar attempted to catch fish for dinner. He is a better sailor than a fisherman.
In the afternoon we set sail for Eyemouth with a good blow and 2 reefs in the main. “Windbreker” sped across the sea at a cracking 7.9 knots. Luckily Edgar trusted me with the helm which was a wonderful experience.
Monday morning came and I departed for the Lakes and home for a few days before joining “Syene” over the weekend in Newcastle.
