We did an overnight sail from Wales to the island Islay in Scotland. Once again we had a lot of fog in the morning when we got close to Islay. We entered the marina at Port Ellen early in the morning, we ate some breakfast and then took a walk in Port Ellen.
After lunch we took the whiskey path, a walking path that goes past three distilleries. Islay whiskey is famous for being smoky.
After the walk we had a nice dinner out with Sanuti. It was our last night together. We met in Bequia, St Vincent and the Grenadines half a year earlier and sailed together since then. But now they would sail to the Outer Hebrides and we were on our way to the Caledonia Canal.
The following morning we got up early and started the sail towards the Caledonia Canal entrance.
