I have decided to stay in Troon after advice from many including the RNLI, due to a deepening low coming in after tomorrow and Girvan and Portpatrick not being safe havens in strong winds.
I'm a little gutted as I was trying to get back for the 25th of this month, but it's not worth taking any risk's at this stage and the North Channel is not the most forgiving stretch of sea.
I have tomorrows entertainment sorted, as there is a wind festival competition on and I have offered a helping hand to the RYA on one of their safety ribs which should be good fun.
So here's to another week or so waiting for another low to pass, ( be patients they tell me) !!!!!!!
