This trip went from John S Hill's boatyard in Glasgow
Scotland to Liverpool Marina, calling at
Inverkip, Troon and Portpatrick. Sea Area Malin/Clyde had F5-7 Southerly most of the time, causing
us to have to wait for three days in Portpatrick to get favourable winds to pass
into the Irish Sea.
Distance covered over 7 days, 220nm Average speed when travelling, 5.4
Knots, 20 Night hours.
This was my first time sailing/motoring Stardust and she performed extremely
well, despite high waves and a lot of turbulence in the North Channel, we felt
very safe in her.
