To the Fastnet! The weather and tide were perfect for it. Going offshore like this in a small boat, you should always have an escape route or two planned in case the weather freshened. With the wind SE, I had two; a broad reach to Crookhaven, or close hauled to Schull. Schull was the one I took as it gave me the option of running to Crook in an emergency.
Such a beautiful lighthouse. I’m sure I’ll be back there again sometime.
