Postscript

 

The folk here are very friendly and although this is not the most picturesque of places, it is very tempting to stay. All of us need to be back in the south over the next few weeks and we spend some time cleaning and washing,

but we resolve to keep Heydays here for a while and come back from time to time to explore the little harbours and distilleries of North East Scotland in whatever autumn cruising we can get.

The Peterhead lifeboat moors up next to us while the crew do some training and exercises by jumping into the water to be rescued. Ally, the full time mechanic on board, shows us round the Tamar class boat with its twin 18L 1000HP engines. We are immensely grateful to the RNLI and their utter dedication to all of us foolish enough to put to sea for whatever reason.

  1. Hi Heydays
    Good to see you got where you needed to be. We ended up.in Blyth after stops at Holy Island, the Inner Farne and Amble. Long crossing of the Forth overnight taking advantage of the only northerly of the week, fighting the remains of the SW swell.
    Thoroughly entertaining weekend of the Tall Ships at Blyth, made most welcome by our old friends at RNYC – the club with what must be the most comfortable club lounge in the UK, in the preserved lightship Tyne
