Long day

Up before 05:00 for an early start to catch the tide. A different country today. Lots of blue sky, sunshine, and moderate winds.

The route to Cork passed the impressive sights of The Hook lighthouse, (origin of the phrase 'by hook or by crook'), Minehead lighthouse, the all black Ballycotton lighthouse, and finally Roche's Point. The scenery was glorious with corn ripening in the fields and green farmland right up to the coastal cliffs.

By evening we sailed into the wide entrance of Cork Harbour and found a spare berth at Royal Cork Yacht Club.

A little light maintenance followed by yet another high calorie meal and suddenly it's time for bed before catching another early tide.
