Tuesday 25th August. PSM
Yet another day of strong wind coming (later)/ possibly gale (later)/ small craft will die (later)/ don’t bother going home anyway as your house has blown down (later) etc. etc. forecasts. Despite this one yacht departed for Douglas rather than have a repetition on this morning’s shenanigans. In fact it really was quite a nice day, sunny with a fair breeze. We moved Soay to raft alongside the remaining yacht “Sea Lark” on the basis that having them as a fender against the wall was better. The death by “later” duly arrived later but fortunately from the SW so the night was distinctly more peaceful than the previous one.
