Sailing to Orkney

Originally uploaded by Famous Frankie
I spent this evening helping to prepare the yacht for our voyage to Orkney on Friday. We had to change the forward sail for a larger, more ocean-going one that would increase our speed in what we expect to be quite light winds. We dumped the dinghy ashore as it won't be needed. We also had to visit the supermarket to buy food for the 2 day crossing, enough for 4 people. This may or may not get eaten, depending on how rough it is... My children sat in the shelter of the cabin as it was raining. I'm thinking hard about protective clothing...
