Summary: A quick final sail round Belfast Lough and then back into Bangor marina. 5.9 miles in 1hr 55 minutes.
After filling up with fuel and gas and pumping out the holding tank, we popped out today for a quick sail. In the sunshine, Belfast Lough was beautiful and though it was only blowing a light northeasterly 1-2, we had a relaxing couple of hours sailing – tacking down towards Donagdahee Sound. We then headed back into Bangor marina where we have decided to leave the boat for the winter. A good winter deal makes it reasonably good value and it is a very secure and sheltered harbour, so it seems like a good place to leave the boat. We are then only 40 miles away from the Mull of Kintyre for next season!
