Night paddle to Inishturk

We landed just north of Omey Island and repaired Harry's rudder. Harry pointed out to me that this was where Bill Taylor and co, from Commitments and open crossings had landed on their round Britain and Ireland expedition some 30 odd years ago.

We grabbed a swift pint of the black stuff which serves as great fuel and headed off to Inishturk, arriving in the small but well protected harbour just before midnight. Now recharging electrics and refuelling ourselves once more in the Inishturk Community Club which is situated ten minutes walk above the harbour. Off early tomorrow if the weather holds - we are expecting a bit of wind from the north east during the weekend and wonder how this is going to affect our crossing of Donegal Bay. All's good and both going strong :).,-10.0907&ll=53.70602,-10.0907&ie=UTF8&z=12&om=1
