I jumped on the chance of a tow out of Stornoway. Neighbouring yatch Epinoch with skipper Richard kindly towed us 5 miles out of port where we picked up a light northerly wind. He too is leaving Gothenburg but will stop along the way. I have stocked up on lots of food. And now hoping for some better winds to take us home, sailing north of Orkneys. I will now have some ‘cream tea’ and settle into the quiet night tacking slowly up The Minch. Gothenburg, here we come!!
