Re: Sailing to Ireland II
I did it from Gosport to Cork a few years ago, we passed Plymouth.
The passage was fairly straight forward, the obvious ports of refuge were factored in, but once we rounded Longship LH, we felt committed to Cork, of course in truth we wern t, we still had Padstow etc.
With SW winds that we had the wind was on the beam, so although a big rolling sea with a chop on top from the F5-6 we had a great sail. What was more tiresome was the beating into the SWly up to Longships.
