Cape Cutter rally 2018 – day 2 – Largs to Inverkip

Today was a day of waiting, with a very gusty easterly hurtling down from the hills. The weather was otherwise lovely, so we climbed Castle Hill, to admire the view, which was indeed stunning.

The wind has been forecast to abate during the afternoon, but the gusts were still quite wild, although when the wind is in this direction, it’s much worse at Largs than the rest of that stretch of coast.

So it was a few boats set out north to Kip Marina, watched by those ashore. We could see that conditions were very choppy with big gusts just by the marina, but once the boats passed the town things calmed down considerably.

The rest of the party set out late in the afternoon on staysail and engine only, to arrive at Kip in light winds, followed by a lovely meal in the Chart Room, overlooking the marina.
